Here is a lovely song from them.
A Rotterdam November's "Letter"
You yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, known and read by everybody. You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.
--2 Corinthians 3:2-3 (NIV1984)
Using some Bible verses and working them into a love song…pretty neat.
Moving along, 2 Corinthians 4:7:
Jars of Clay's "Four Seven"
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 (NASB)
And from the very next lines in the Bible, we have
"I'm pressed but not crushed persecuted not abandoned
Struck down but not destroyed
I'm blessed beyond the curse for his promise will endure
And his joy's gonna be my strength"
Darrell Evans' "Trading My Sorrows"
We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
--2 Corinthians 4:8-9 (NIV1984)
