"Vessels of Honor"
“Vessels of Honor”
The Lord has told us to…
- be diligent to present ourselves approved a workman
- avoid worldly and empty chatter
- abstain from wickedness
- stand upon the firm foundation of God
The next verses instruct us to be vessels of honor...
2 Timothy 2:20-21
20 Now in a large house there are not only gold and silver vessels, but also vessels of wood and of earthenware, and some to honor and some to dishonor.
21 Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from these things, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified, useful to the Master, prepared for every good work.
The large house is God’s creation...mankind.
Those of the world...unbelievers...are wood, earthenware...dishonor.
Those who have cleansed themselves through the Lord are not of the world...gold, silver.
If we cleanse ourselves from these things...from wickedness, from dishonor...
If we do so through the blood of the Lord Jesus…
Then, we will be…
- a vessel of honor
- useful to the Master
- prepared for every good work.
Be a Vessel of Honor in the Kingdom.
