Useful vessels in God’s hands

Useful vessels in God’s hands

 

 

Text:
2 Timothy 2:20-26

 
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.
21 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.
22 Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
23 But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.
24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,
25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;
26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

 

 

 

Introduction:
God is willing to use everyone who is willing and ready to be used of God. A condition that will make us useful includes holy living and willingness to do as He pleases.

 

 

 

What does it take to be used of God?

 

 

1. You must be clean from the lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh and the pride of life.
1 John 2:15-17
Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

 

 

 

2. You must be saved through the blood of Jesus.
1 John 1:7
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all

 

 

 

3. You must be obedient to His Word.
Isaiah 1:19
If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good things of the land;

 

 

 

4. You must be willing to do whatever He says with joy right from your heart.
Isaiah 1:19
If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good things of the land;

 

 

 

5. Be humble to God so that you will not be replaced.
1 Peter 5:5-6
Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.

6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

 

 

6. Determine to return all glory to God after every assignment.
2 Corinthian 3:5
Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God.

 

 

7. Remain faithful in each assignment He give you, you need to be faithful as a steward. Matthew 25:21
His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

 

 

Conclusion:
Never give room for God to replace you in any assignment but rather be faithful in the little that is committed to your hands so that you can be given higher responsibilities as a way of promotion.

 

 

 

Thank You Jesus.
