But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
For we who live are always being delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.
So then death worketh in us, but life in you.
We, having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written: "I believed and therefore have I spoken" -- we also believe and therefore speak,
knowing that He who raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise us up also by Jesus, and shall present us with you.
For all things are for your sakes, that, through the thanksgiving of many, the abundant grace might redound to the glory of God.
For this cause we faint not, but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
