A Vision for 2021

Grace Extending to More 

  • A Powerful Treasure
  • A Sustaining Treasure
  • A Multiplying Treasure 

Questions for Further Study or Group Discussion:

  1. Read 2 Corinthians 4:7-15. What does Paul want to communicate by using the metaphor “jars of clay”? Why does he use this metaphor?
  2. What is the “treasure”? Look back to verses 1-6. What is the power of this treasure?
  3. What is Paul communicating with the contrasting terms in verses 8-9? What sustains Paul? As followers of Christ, can we expect freedom from tribulation?
  4. Consider verse 15. What does grace do? How? Why? 

Memory Verse of the Week:

2 Corinthians 4:7 But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us. (ESV)
