However, we possess this precious treasure [the divine Light of the Gospel] in [frail, human] vessels of earth, that the grandeur and exceeding greatness of the power may be shown to be from God and not from ourselves.
(2 Corinthians 4:7 AMP)

This is an empty boat waiting for its owner to take it out fishing. A boat takes up space in the water without purpose and slowly corrodes away unless the owner uses it for its intended function of fishing. Our bodies are like these purposeless vessels. If we don’t use them for their intended function we slowly live a meaningless existence and fade away. The Lord has created each one of us for a specific reason and He has some exciting adventures planned out. His precious treasure of salvation is inside all those who follow King Jesus as their Savior. Then He transforms us into useful fishing vessels. Jesus called out to them, “Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!” (Matthew 4:19)
