Today, KOG is presenting the second instalment of Pics and Verses, where past and present members, as well as friends, submit images of themselves (preferably coping with this time of change and struggle) along with a passage of Scripture they have found helpful.
Pastor Lyndon Sayers of Church of the Cross, Victoria, along with Floretien and their two children, has offered us this thought and verse along with a picture.
Thought: God is present amidst our fragility. Jesus’ love is revealed especially in times like these, dispelling anxiety and fear, giving way to grace.
2 Cor 4:7-12
But we have this treasure in clay jars, so that it may be made clear that this extraordinary power belongs to God and does not come from us. 8 We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; 10 always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be made visible in our bodies. 11 For while we live, we are always being given up to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus may be made visible in our mortal flesh. 12 So death is at work in us, but life in you.
