Theme: Gripped: Powerful Glory in Fragile Jars Passage: 2 Corinthians 4:7–12 God can powerfully reveal his saving glory in our most seemingly vulnerable times (7a). Why? • The powerful work of salvation belongs to God, not us (7b). • In our suffering for the gospel, the resurrecting life of Jesus manifests itself (8–11). Result: The suffering and dying that the minister of Christ experiences produces life in the recipient (12). Main Idea: We need to allow God to powerfully display his glory in our lives by continuing to trust and obey the gospel no matter the circumstances we are experiencing. Application Questions: • Why has God chosen to reveal his power through our weakness? List biblical examples in which we see this. • How have you seen this displayed in your own life? • What is Paul indicating in v. 11 by the contrasting imagery of alive, death, and the life of Jesus on display in our bodies? How can we apply Paul’s switch from “us” to “you” language in v. 12? What might this teach us about ministering to one another?
