Vessels for Honour

Preachers Corner http://www.preacherscorner.org.uk

The believer has been called to be a vessel that honours the Lord. In the following address, we will hear from God’s word how we can be useful vessels for the Lord as we seek to serve him in our Christian pathway.

Bible Scriptures: Darby Translation 

Romans 9:21-24Or has not the potter authority over the clay, out of the same lump to make one vessel to honour, and another to dishonour? And if God, minded to shew his wrath and to make his power known, endured with much long-suffering vessels of wrath fitted for destruction; and that he might make known the riches of his glory upon vessels of mercy, which he had before prepared for glory,us, whom he has also called, not only from amongst [the] Jews, but also from amongst [the] nations?”

2 Corinthians 4:6-7 “Because [it is] the God who spoke that out of darkness light should shine who has shone in our hearts for the shining forth of the knowledge of the glory of God in [the] face of [Jesus] Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the surpassingness of the power may be of God, and not from us” 

2 Timothy 2:20-26But in a great house there are not only gold and silver vessels, but also wooden and earthen; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If therefore one shall have purified himself from these, [in separating himself from them], he shall be a vessel to honour, sanctified, serviceable to the Master, prepared for every good work. But youthful lusts flee, and pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace, with those that call upon the Lord out of a pure heart.  But foolish and senseless questionings avoid, knowing that they beget contentions. And a bondman of [the] Lord ought not to contend, but be gentle towards all; apt to teach; forbearing; in meekness setting right those who oppose, if God perhaps may sometime give them repentance to acknowledgment of [the] truth, and that they may awake up out of the snare of the devil, [who are] taken by him, for *his* will.”  

Exodus 25:29-30And thou shalt make the dishes thereof, and cups thereof, and goblets thereof, and bowls thereof, with which to pour out: of pure gold shalt thou make them. And thou shalt set upon the table shewbread before me continually.”
