Vessels Unto Honour

“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.” -- 2 Timothy 2:21

Jesus said to His disciples, and to us who know Him as Savior, in John 15:3 that “we are clean through the word” that He had spoken. True cleansing and washing can only come through the Word of God. Ephesians 5:26, speaking of Christ’s bride, which consists of all believers, says “that he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word.”

The Psalmist David, in his great penitential Psalm, wrote “Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.” (Psalms 51:2) The only way to be a “vessel unto honour” is to be in the Word of God every day, “Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.” (Psalms 119:9)

God has a purging process to clean us up and make us better equipped to serve Him. We also can purge out the old leaven (I Cor. 5:7) in our lives and present ourselves to Him, unworthy servants to the most worthy Saviour!

Come before the Lord this Lord’s Day and ask Him to show you what needs to be purged from your life, and where you need to be cleansed.
Am I spending time in God’s Word, the Bible, daily and seeing it do a convicting and cleansing work in my life? - Peter Laitres
