A vessel, by definition, means a container and this container or vessel can be used for different purposes. My question to you is, are you a vessel? And if your answer is yes, which vessel are you? Are you a vessel for honor or a vessel for dishonor? There are so many types of vessels that the scripture talked about in the book of 2 Timothy 2:20-21, “But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold or silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. 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.”
Beloved, what vessel are you? Please examine yourself and see if you are a vessel for honor or a vessel for dishonor and remember that there are criteria you must meet in order to fit in the category of the vessel for honor. Some of the criteria are:
- You must live a holy and a righteous life
- You must love your neighbor as yourself
- You must be more of a giver than a receiver
- You must forgive always, no matter how great the offense.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I come before you today and I surrender my life onto you and ask that you have mercy on me and forgive me all my sins and iniquities because I want to be used as a vessel for honor in your house. Lord, I know that I cannot be used as a vessel for honor if I am not clean and therefore I ask that you cleanse me with your precious blood in Jesus name. Amen
