Vessels Unto Honour

2 Timothy 2: 20-22
Memory Verse:
“Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honour, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work” (2 Timothy 2:21).

The God we serve is result oriented. He never does anything just for the fun of it and, so, He created every one of us with a purpose in mind. No one on earth exists without a special assignment. He expects our lives to be full of good works that produce positive results. There is nothing as rewarding as being used by the Lord. He is the best boss that anyone can ever have. He generously rewards every act of service. However, our God operates by established principles. There are things that you must do to be used by Him. First, you must be clean. God will use various types of vessels – broken vessels, young vessels, old vessels, poor vessels, wounded vessels – but He will never use a dirty vessel. The Holy Spirit makes this clear in 2 Timothy 2:21.

Secondly, you must seek to know what specific assignment God has for you.
Your assignment in life is specific to you. For example, though there were many apostles in the early Church, God still chose Paul and sent him to the Gentiles. Even if it seems like you have similar assignments with any other person, you do not have the same purpose as them. To know your specific purpose, your spiritual eyes must be open and fixed on God. When your relationship with God is solid, you should have no problem with knowing your purpose and focusing on it.

Prayer Points:
1. Father, open my eyes of understanding to comprehend the specific assignment You have for me.
2. Father, help me to maintain a good relationship with You.
