2 Timothy 2:20-22

[20]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.

You must be clean if you want to be a vessel that will be used to serve in a great moment.

No one will use a common cup to serve great men in his home, but will use a reserved, neat, attractive, and eye-catching cup to serve to show much honor.

How can you develop into an excellent vessel for the master's use?

When you separate yourself from this world and its things, you can become such a great vessel.

The vessel represents your body and heart; if they are clean, God can use you for His mighty service.

No matter how gifted or talented we are in our walk with God, if we do not set ourselves apart for God to use us, we will not become gold or either of these vessels.

You must present yourself completely and immaculately. The price for such greatness is holiness and sanctification. It is the cost you must pay in order to achieve such a level of honor and greatness in your walk with God.

Romans 12:1-2

[1]I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

[2]And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

You must not live immorally, your heart must be pure, and your mind must be renewed. Because you have become Christ's, you must think like a godly person.

Such a person has the potential to be a great vessel used by God to bless lives and His kingdom. The reason we have so many pastors but so few are raised is that God has found them to be faithful, holy, pleasing, and accepted.

Let holiness and righteousness be your hallmarks, and greatness will be yours.

God bless you for taking the time to read this. Amen
