Are you a vessel for the master’s use?
What are vessels?
According to the scripture, vessels are instruments( men) that God created and they choose to separate themselves and make themselves available for God’s use.
2 Timothy 2:20-21, “But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.
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.”
God is not a wicked or partial father, He wants every of His creations to be useful for Him.
But it is very evident that not all His creations are.
John 15:16, “Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.”
Each one of us have different roles to perform in the kingdom and it is very important to put all our best to be a vessel unto honor and not unto dishonor.
Attributes of vessels unto honor
- they make themselves always available for the master’s use;
- they are pure, sanctified and have been purge;
- they have the same goal even if their calling and purpose are different, and the goal is making the master proud.
The vessel unto dishonor are sinners that are not ready to repent.
But as vessels unto honor we should always do our best to make our master happy.
Our goal is to bring people to Christ, tell the lost sheep about Christ.
It is important to be very careful and make sure we don’t judge anyone because God has not made us judge over anyone but rather encourage and pray for them.
We must be prepared at all times, so that the master meets us always prepared and not unprepared.
