On the Potter’s Wheel


Grarncarz w Rabce / Potter in Rabka

Quote from our Pastor teaching on Jeremiah 18:3, ” Then I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was, making something at the wheel.”

…Jeremiah, when he came to the potter’s house, he didn’t disturb the craftsman but he just stood there in the door and beheld the craftsman while he did his work. He saw how the potter had his wheel… He had to pump the pedals to turn the wheel. The wheel would spin around, and as it [spun] around, he put the clay on the wheel and he would take his hand, and he would [morph the clay] with his hands… He would apply pressure here and pressure there. And he would lighten up over here and lighten up over there. And he would shape the clay in his hand to cause it to become a vessel of his desire. Only the potter knows what the vessel needs to look like because the potter has the image of the vessel in his mind. The potter has the purpose of the vessel in his mind. The potter knows what he is making the vessel to be used for.
