Are you a consecrated Vessel?

Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work. –2 Timothy 2:21

The Bible refers to us as earthen, or frail, human vessels(see 2 Corinthians 4:7). Like stoneware formed on the potter’s wheel, we are made of clay (see Isaiah 64:8). God formed Adam out of the dust of the ground, according to Genesis 2:7, and Psalm 103:14 says, He knows our frame, He[earnestly] remembers and imprints [on His heart] that we are dust.

Though we are weak and imperfect, when we fill our vessels(ourselves) with the Word of God, we become containers of His blessing, ready to be poured out for His use. All of us are valuable to the Lord–God can even use cracked pots!

But first we must be wholly consecrated to God. Second Timothy 2:21 reminds us, Whoever cleanses himself [from what is ignoble and unclean, who separates himself from contact with contaminating and corrupting influences] will [then himself] be a vessel set apart and useful for honorable and noble purposes, consecrated and profitable to the Master, fit and ready for any good work.

Today, when you become a set-apart vessel, God will do incredible things through your life.

From the book “Promises for our everyday lives”
