Vessels of Mercy

Verse of the Month

“Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, the remnant will be saved.” (Romans 9:27)
September 1-7, 2016


Scripture Reading: Romans 9:16 & 23 

Vessels of Mercy 

If you are like most people, you have asked God questions like, “Why have you made me like this? Why did this happen to me?” Friends, our Lord is a God of mercy and doesn’t plan destruction or hurt for His children, but knows things happen as a result of sin in the earth.   

“So then it is not of him who wills, nor of him who runs,
but of God who shows mercy.” (Romans 9:16) 

Jesus has declared that He is the potter and has formed us to be used of Him for His glory here on earth.   His great love makes provision for us.  We are called His vessels to whom He has given mercy and forgiveness.  God prepared the riches of His glory for the vessels of mercy; all who believe in Him.

Instead of asking, “Why me Lord?” thank God that you are a vessel of mercy to be used of Him, and are open to whatever He wants you to be. (cw)

(…and that He might make known the riches of His glory on the vessels of mercy,  which He had prepared beforehand for glory.
(Romans 9:23 NKJV)
