“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 (KJV)

Being a vessel of honor depends largely on our input as children of God. In the Kingdom of God, every child of God is regarded as a vessel. The vessels are categorized into gold, silver, wood, and earth (2 Timothy 2:20).

Dear beloved, which of these vessels will you love to be? Almost everyone will go for gold because it is costly, beautiful, durable, etc. However, in the Kingdom of God, being a useful vessel depends on how one would discipline themselves and cleanse themselves from pollutants such as wrong doctrines, lusts, sins, ungodliness, etc. (2 Timothy 2:16–26). It is possible to live a spotless life because the Holy Spirit lives in us and can give us all the support we need. It is for this reason that Jesus Christ said we should be perfect as our heavenly Father (Matthew 5:48).

Beloved, when you become born again you are set apart from the world and no longer belong to the world. You now belong to the family of God, so set your mind on things above and be focused on your divine assignment. Apostle Paul immediately set his heart on his call after his conversion and became a vessel of honor for the Lord (Acts 9:20). You can do the same by changing your associations; choose the company of people who are serious with the Lord so that you can also draw inspiration from them—living a sanctified life and becoming a vessel that Jesus Christ can trust and use for His good work on earth. Hallelujah! Be a vessel of honor!

Prayer Point: My loving Father, thank You for calling me to Your lovely family. I set myself apart unto You solely for Your purpose. Please continually purge me from ungodly things so that I can always be a vessel of honor, suitable for You to use to accomplish Your good works on earth in Jesus’ name. Amen!
