What kind of vessel are you?

"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." 2 Timothy 2:20 KJV

In verse 7 Paul says, "Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things."  The reason why we hear this word is so that we may be able to teach others also. All of us, including yourself, we are all teachers of the word. 

God wants you to be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus, so that you may also become a witness of his. 

Understand this also, we labour in the gospel and endure all things so that you may obtain and pass on to others that same salvation and honour and eternal glory which is in Christ Jesus.

Paul says charge them to not subvert hearers, but that they teach the true foundations of God, which is sound doctrine. "But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness" There are people who have erred from the truth, you know them, and many we call prophets of ours, these are good only at spreading heresies, and he gave an example of who these people are, and said such as say the resurrection is past already, and these, by so doing are they who overthrow the faith of many, "and their word will eat as doth a canker..." 2 Timothy 2:17. Cancer is a deadly disease, you seem to look well but inside you're damaged, so is everyone under the watch of false prophets - you’re finished. They tell you it's okay to divorce and marry another. 

Which vessel are you?

Anyway, I wrote wanting to show you how also you're a vessel of substance in this great house, and my prayer for you is  that you thrive for mastery. Be strong in grace and become a witness, "And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will" 2 Timothy 2:24-26.



God bless,

Contend for the Faith!

You’re in Jesus Christ as God’s plan of salvation for you;
He called you, and you said yes in Jesus, wherein you are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved. In him is God’s mercy, and peace, and love multiplied towards you.
You are sanctified and preserved in Christ by God the Father, and not you alone, it’s a common salvation - it is the case throughout the world. The whole world is going after him. What happened to me happened also to you and to all who believe in God through Christ around the world.
Here is why God chose you, "that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints" Jude 1:3.
We earnestly contend for the faith,  [or defend] the common salvation, that it remains the same as it was first delivered.
"For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ."…

Receive the Holy Spirit!

In Mark chapter one John the Baptist told his audience that the one who is more powerful is coming, he will baptise you with the Holy Spirit.
And in those days Jesus came from Nazareth and was baptized in the Jordan by John, and as soon as he came up out of the water, John saw the heavens open and the Spirit descending on Jesus like a dove, and immediately the Spirit drove him into the wilderness.
Now listen my friend; when you receive the Holy Spirit, immediately your life changes. 
God does not give you of his spirit to only experience a funny feeling; quaking, trembling, or entertaining others like what they do in circus, but he gave us that he should drive us to doing his will. The Spirit drove Jesus into the wilderness for "forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him." It was not fun, but serious business, such that later a man with an unclean spirit, "cried out, Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, tho…

It is well with my soul

Jesus said, "In your patience possess ye your souls." Luke 21:19.
He says, "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" Mark 8:36-37.
My message here for you is after you have done all in life, gain your souls, know how you can possess it. When you are self-aware, you consciously know and understand your own character, feelings, motives, desires and what these should serve in life. When we are self-aware, we are able to experience ourselves as separate individuals, with unique personalities natured for the divine, and it is what makes it possible for us to make lasting changes in our lives. 
Self-awareness is empowering, because the more self-aware we are, the more we know who we are, what our strengths are, where we need to make improvements, and  what to do. Know that you have a soul, and that soul needs to grow and it does grow only when you feed it with things divine, no…
