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)

The Whole Creation Is Groaning – Romans 8:19-22

At Christ’s return, when he comes for his chosen ones, the whole creation itself will be transformed and renewed. The groanings of the creation now are compared to childbirth. It will come to an end when God’s children are fully revealed. Until then, it suffers in anticipation.
