What’s your favorite verse or Scripture passage?
I haven’t chosen what most would call a “life verse.” However, the verses that often come to mind when this question is asked would be 2 Corinthians 4:1–7. It’s a constant reminder of the glorious treasure we have in the gospel of Christ and an admonition to not hoard it. It’s not about me; it’s about the good news of the gospel 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. 4:7).
