"...but we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the
power may be of God and not of us. We are hard-pressed on every side, yet
not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not
forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed--always carrying about in the body
the dying of Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our
body. For we, who live, are always delivered to death for Jesus' sake, that
the life of Jesus also be manifested in our mortal flesh. So then
death is working in us, but life in you.

"And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written,
'I believed; therefore, I spoke,' we also believe; therefore, we speak,
knowing that He who raised up the Lord Jesus will also raise us up with
Jesus, and will present us with you. For all things are for your sakes,
that grace, having spread through many, may cause thanksgiving to abound
to the glory of God.

"Therefore, we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing,
yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction,
which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and
eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen,
but at the things which are not seen. For the things that are seen are
temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal."

(II Corinthians 4:7-18)
