2 Corinthians 4:5-9 NIV “For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.”
I am going to be at an undisclosed location in Uganda this week doing some territorial warfare with a local team. Humanly speaking, the task is too large for the team we have.
The tension between the “light of the glory of God” and the “jars of clay” is pressing on me heavily. I don’t want to hold back because I see the team more clearly than I see the King, nor do I want to over reach.
Pray that I will have utmost clarity about how to bring the light of God to the land He made.
