The Marvels of Ministry


II Cor. 4:1-12

Ministry is a Divine Decision

“Therefore since through God’s mercy we have this ministry” vs.1

 Ministry is a Humbling Experience

                But we have this treasure in jars of clay…vs. 7

 Ministry is Making God Look Good

 …to show that this all –surpassing power is from God and not from us” vs 7

“We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair, persecuted, but not abandoned struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body”. vs 8,9
