The Potter & The Clay
We have a responsibility to be slow to speak and quick to listen when our culture is the opposite. Do you agree? People talk to much and don't listen near enough. Make a change today to become a great listener. Your friends and family will notice and benefit from this.
Verse 3 So I went down to the potter’s house and saw him working at the potter’s wheel.
Verse 4 He was using his hands to make a pot from clay, but something went wrong with it. So he used that clay to make another pot the way he wanted it to be.
#2. God Gives Us Another Chance.
Allow His hands, His word, His spirit to re-shape you. Make you better. Heal your anger. Comfort you. Inspire you to live the life you were supposed to live.
#3. Allow The Potter To Refine You.
Matthew 3:11 He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.
When the potter is done with the clay pot it is put into the fire to be refined. This process gives it the strength it will need for the job ahead. Ask the Holy Spirit to baptize you. This is a teaching for another day but it does't have to be as complicated as we often make it. Ask God for the baptism of the Holy Spirit. It's a free gift. Continue to seek Him and when He feels the time is right He will grant your request. Trust Him through the process.
Last but not least - John 14:1 Jesus said, “Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust in me.
How do you get to know God and the heart of God better? Jesus is the answer. God sent Jesus to live as a man among us on earth for a time to teach us more about God. So get to know Jesus through the Gospels in the Bible. 4 accounts of His life. Through that you will get to know God better than ever.
The video above is a short power packed 20 minutes. I hope you are blessed by it. Let's all make time to go down to the potters house - Church this Sunday and place ourselves in God's hands.
Love, Pastor Max
