IN A GREAT HOUSE


IN A GREAT HOUSE

2 Timothy 2:19-21 (NKJV) 19 Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity.” 20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. 21 Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.

Today, I would like to look at verses 20 and 21.  God is looking for a people that want to move from the ordinary to the extraordinary; from the life of wood and clay to a life of gold and silver.  Many people believe that what God wants you to be, you will be, but that is not what this verse is saying.  In verse 21, it states that we make the decision of what we will be.

You might be asking, “What do you mean?”  Well here it says, “Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.”  We need to clean up our act.  We need to put ourselves in position to be used by Him. 

I decide what type of life I will live.  Will I let sin rule me, or do I let His grace control my life?  Do I take time to read and study His Word, or do I just sit by the TV and let the hours roll away?  You see, it is up to me what I will do with myself.  Today, make a decision to be a vessel of honor to Him, and let Him be able to use you each and every day.

Confession: Today, I make a decision to be a vessel of honor for the Master’s use.  I put my life in His hands, but I also choose the things of the Kingdom instead of the things of this world that are passing away.
