A Clay Jar

But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. (2 Cor. 4:7 NIV)

Notice: I am evaluating a translation service for A Clay Jar. Depending on the performance and validity of the translation, it may or may not continue. The translation is done automatically via Google Translate so it may contain errors. There are many other languages available as well if this proves to be valuable. I would be interested in any feedback you provide. It will help me to decide whether to keep this or not.

7/26/22 – I have received no feedback on the translation service so far. If I hear nothing in the near future, I will assume this has no value to the blog’s readers and will remove it.

Welcome to A Clay Jar

The musings of an armchair theologian

The title of this blog is simply a reflection of who I am, a fragile clay jar. I am nothing. But the one who lives in this fragile clay jar, and has called me into his service, is of great value. My prayer to God is that he will use this meager offering for the advancement of his kingdom.

This blog, and all of the posts it contains, are a reflection of my own thoughts and understandings concerning the Bible and theology in general. They do not necessarily reflect the teachings of the church or denomination that I am a part of. I do consider myself to be a conservative, although apolitical, evangelical, and hold strongly to the inspiration and authority of the Bible.

The content on this site can be divided roughly into three categories. Most of the posts are in the neighborhood of 300 words and are devotional in nature. There are also some extended series that cover a larger passage of Scripture, or a topic. The final category is theological in nature, dealing with specific topics such as God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, salvation, the church, and last things. Each of these can be found by clicking on the appropriate button below. Or select Blog Posts to see all of the articles as they are published.
