Treasure of Truth in Earthen Vessels

~a testimonial by Julia Comer

"But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves." 2 Corinthians 4:7

As the day rapidly approached to leave for our Women's Ministry 2018 trip to Liberia, I felt tired, ill-prepared, and quite honestly uninspired.  Sounds super spiritual, right?  But I was going anyway because, at the end of the day, I knew this was exactly what God had called me to and exactly where I was supposed to be.

Throughout the days of travel, I spent a lot of time in prayer, asking God for a timely WORD from HIM that would encourage me and be the overarching theme of the trip. That WORD came the day after we arrived in the area where we would be teaching. I was reading in Colossians when the following words caught me eye and sank deep into my heart:

This same Good News that came to you is going all over the world. It is bearing fruit everywhere by changing lives, just as it changed your lives from the day you first heard and understood the truth about God’s wonderful grace.

Yes! Lives changed by the Word of God! Well now, there's some inspiration! And as we spent time with the ladies, that's exactly what we saw happening in their lives.

While sitting with them and their families during our house visits and within the formal teaching sessions that occurred on George and Lucy's front porch, we heard statements over and over again. They attested to how TRUTH was impacting and changing their lives. Statements like, "I am happy because now I understand that I am free. There is no more need for sacrifice because Jesus was the perfect sacrifice to pay the penalty for my sin."  "Even though it is according to our culture to call our children 'bad, bad names' (insulting names) when they are "being frisky" (acting up), I know now that it is not right for me to do this because the Bible teaches that I am to be kind and encouraging with my words."  She clearly heard the message from Ephesians 4:17-31

And a few more... "If we really understand what all Christ has done for us, why would we want to keep on sinning?" "I am in Christ and nothing can change that. I know now that I have eternal life because I am believing in what Christ did for me.

We sang a song most every day called, "Complete in Him" one of the lines in the song says, "There's nothing more that I can do for Jesus paid it all."  The ladies rejoiced greatly in this TRUTH!

As our time in Liberia wrapped up and we headed home, I found myself thanking God over and over that He is willing to use weak vessels like me to accomplish His kingdom work. Being a part of what He is doing around the world is a great adventure!   I don't want to miss out!  So, as God gives me opportunity, I will continue to go; and as a team, our prayer will continue to be that these ladies who are wives, mothers, and grandmothers within their own homes and sister, neighbours and friends within their communities will continue to apply and live out the truth they have heard.  Impacting the people around them with the glorious TRUTH of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
