God Knows What He Needs Us to Be

Line art drawing of potter's wheel.

Quote from our Pastor teaching on Jeremiah 18 (continued from previous post):

“…Once the potter had prepared for the …remake and he had moistened the clay and rolled it and loosened it and mashed it a few times in his hand [that] he put it back on the wheel. And he began… to start the [potter’s] wheel to turn. [He] began to shape the vessel. [He] began to put pressure on it at various points, …[letting the clay] slide through his fingers. [He] applied more moisture and formed it and shaped it and carved it out to the point where it was satisfactory. [He carved it out] to the point where he knew, if it was a pitcher, it would hold water and it would disperse water evenly… [He carved it out] to the point that if it were a bowl, it would hold the stuff that was inside it and not let [its contents] leak out.

“God knows what he needs us to be [but] we’ve have to be willing to step up on the wheel..”
