Treasure in Earthen Vessels and Heart Hiding {Week 34}


This week’s passage contains my most favorite verse, 2 Cor. 4:7.  I’ve been waiting since Jan. 1 to get here!

Treasure in Earthen Vessels and Heart Hiding {Week 34}.  By the calendar it is Week 39.   We are now back to one post per week.    The goal is to keep memorizing, even if we are behind at the end.

How about you?  How is your memorization going?

This is week 34 of  Heart Hidingwhere we are memorizing 2 Corinthians 1-5.   Paul’s gospel is Christ Jesus the Lord.

For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.

For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

2 Cor. 4:5-7

As in last week’s verses, God’s light is shining in us.  We are the earthen vessel and God’s treasure is His Son Jesus Christ, shining in our hearts if we have trusted in Him to save us from our sins.  Marvelous!  Humbling.

I am continuing to review  2 Corinthians 1:1-24, 2 Corinthians 2:1-17,  2 Corinthians 3:1-18, as well as 2 Corinthians 4:1-4.

As I have mentioned before, I have my verses in Scripture Typer, which reminds me to review previously learned portions on a regular basis.  I find that I often need more frequent review for better retention.

Have you been able to share Scripture Typer with anyone?   What a wonderful resource to be able to share freely!

The heart hiding {Scripture Memorization} page has links to all of the posts.  You may want to check it out.  It is located  under the BIBLE tab, which is under the WORSHIP tab, which is just below the header (WordWorks).  The heart hiding page now has every heart hiding post linked to it, so that you no longer have to scroll through them all (and wait for them to load).

If you have a moment to share with others how God is using His Word in your life,

we would all be blessed and encouraged.

The Glorious Gospel and Heart Hiding {Week 33}


This is the second of two  Heart Hiding posts this week, The Glorious Gospel and Heart Hiding {Week 33}.  By the calendar it is Week 38.   I’m working on Week 33.  Next week we will go back to one post per week.  The goal is to keep memorizing, even if we are behind at the end.

How about you?  How is your memorization going?

This is week 33 of  Heart Hidingwhere we are memorizing 2 Corinthians 1-5.   Paul continues discussing the veil which is upon their heart.

But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:

In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

2 Cor. 4:3-4

The light of Christ’s gospel is to show in our lives.  Many will not see it.  It is our duty to pray for them to regain the sight ofnwhich Satan has robbed them.

I am continuing to review  2 Corinthians 1:1-24, 2 Corinthians 2:1-17,  2 Corinthians 3:1-18, as well as 2 Corinthians 4:1-2.

As I have mentioned before, I have my verses in Scripture Typer, which reminds me to review previously learned portions on a regular basis.  I find that I often need more frequent review for better retention.

Have you been able to share Scripture Typer with anyone?   What a wonderful resource to be able to share freely!
