We are vessels to be used by God for his own purpose. There are two types of vessels;
Vessels of Honor; are those who clean themselves well and are more likely to be santified for Gods purpose.
Vessels of Dishonor; are unclean and more likely, will not be santified for Gods purpose.
When we worship God with inner strength and discipline in all trials of life, we become a light for others to seek to know God.
Their is no short cut to serving God, we have to come out and trust the Lord and be the man God want us to be. Coming out is not seating and listening, but actions that are pleasing to God, we have to present a living sacrifice and these living sacrifice is winning souls to Christ.
Outreach is a way we can become the vessels of honor, we should take a step of faith, knowing is only by faith we receive salvation in Christ. Our step of faith should translate to reality of our daily life and action.
In life, what are the things that can stop us from taking the step of faith towards been santified for Gods purpose;
. We have to flee from evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness.
. We should not have anything to do with foolish and stupid argument, because the produce quarrels.
. Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance. Learning them to a knowledge of the truth.
We have to feed on enlightenment of Gods word and dialogue
On these remembrance of alder gate; we have to reveal our lives and disconnect from those things that stop us from taking a step of faith.
John wesley; even though he was a Priest was still not sure of his calling and was not ready to take a step of faith in total commitment of trust to God: many people looked up to him to lead but he was doubtful of his ability to lead.
“John Wesley only libereated himself from the vessel of dishonor when he discarded the spirit of fear and doubt that has hampered him from having a total trust in God and taking a step of faith that gives him self confidence and believe that transcends to touching live as a vessel of honor.
When God enables us to help one another, we will be set free from the snares of the devil, as when two or more are gathered in the name of the Lord , the Lords is always their.
For through outreach we can touch and change lives of others, who are facing different fear, doubt, inferiority complex,self confidence,temperament.
By taking a step of faith, we can reach out to change a life.
