Last week Dr. Loggins called our attention to what it means to experience the presence of the Spirit of God that produces Liberty. Thus, he unpacked 2 Corinthians 3:17b with insightful passion, which says, “…and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom or liberty” (NIV). He affectionately reminded us that if we truly wanted to be free, then we must be a Holy Spirit-filled people. Filled with less of us, yet more of Him.
Thanks, for joining us again this week, as Dr. Loggins adroitly invites us to never forget how precious and priceless we are in the loving eyes of our Heavenly Father. Paul understood that humanity is imperfect and undone, yet in the hands of God we are His treasures in jars of fragile broken fleshpots. Despite the many hurdles that hinder our progress, as treasures in jars of clay, we were able to scale each and every one of the six hurdles that seeks to cause us to stumble and fail.
It is at this critical point in biblical history, where Dr. Loggins invites us to examine carefully the Apostle Paul’s prophetic words, as he graciously urges the faithful and committed saints in the city of Corinth to realize who they really were in the eyes of God, despite their limitations and personal inadequacies. Thus, Paul thundered out these words. “But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us” (2 Corinthians 4:7).
Then in Proverbs 6:16-19, Dr. Loggins keenly concludes with the six disastrous hurdles, that strives to thwart the Spirit’s Power and the Lord’s Liberty in every Christian Believer. Conversely, God uses these six disastrous hurdles to strengthen our resolve while purifying the quality and commitment of our clay pots. Beloveth, let us prepare our hearts, to joyfully receive what God has clearly revealed to us through the all-surpassing power of both Spirit and Liberty. It is only through all of this that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is this made possible!
