Vessels of Belief
“Now in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver but also of wood and clay, some for honorable use, some for dishonorable. Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from what is dishonorable, he will be a vessel for honorable use, set apart as holy, useful to the master of the house, ready for every good work”.
(2 Timothy 2:20-21)
“For God so love the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life”. (John 3:16)
Filling Empty Vessels
And scripture enlightens us “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart, I will be found by you, declares the Lord, and I will restore your fortunes and gather you from all the nations and all the places where I have driven you declares the Lord, and I will bring you back to the place from which I sent you into exile”.
We call upon God
We Pray to Him
He promises to Hear our Prayer
We seek Him
We find Him
He declares that he will be found, if sought, with all our Heart
He will restore
He will bring back the exiles
He declares to give us a future and a HOPE.
Sow the seeds of Hope ~
the Empty Vessels in exile can be filled,
with the hope
that is our Blessed Savior –
“ So Jesus said to them, “The light is among you for a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, lest darkness overtake you. The one who walks in the darkness does not know where he is going. While you have the light, believe in the light, that you may become sons of light”. (John 12:35-36)
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope”.
“but as it is written,
“Those who have never been told of him will see,
and those who have never heard will understand”. (Romans 15: 13, 21)
