Another Vessel

Another Vessel

“And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.” Jeremiah 18:4

Each of our lives has been marred by sin. That is why we need to be made over again. The word wrought teaches us that God can take something useless and make it useful. His grace goes deeper than our sin. With one turn of the wheel, our Heavenly Potter can make, unmake, or remake our lives.

Astronomers estimate there are 100 billion galaxies in the known universe. To count the number of stars in the Milky Way galaxy alone would require counting three stars per second non-stop for 2,000 years. Yet, Psalm 147:4 declares

God’s infinite wisdom and power: “He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names.” God has the power to fix the damage sin has done in your life and restore you to a place of fellowship and usefulness. Do not disqualify yourself because you are weak; God uses us, weaknesses and all. Never leave God out of the equation of your life -“With God all things are possible.”

“If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.” II Timothy 2:21
