Honour And Dishonour: The Two Sides Of Divine Purpose

"However, in a large house, there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also vessels of wood and soil; and some to glorify, and others to shame." 2 Timothy 2:20

Read: John 6:66-71

Everyone is born with a purpose, whether it is for honor or dishonour. You, on the other hand, are accountable for the category of God's purpose you carry out in His overall operations among men.

"If a man purges himself of them, he will be a vessel of honour, sanctified and fit for the master's use, and ready for every good work." 2 Timothy 2:21; 2 Timothy 3:21; 2 Timothy 4:21

A man can also assist or obstruct God's plan for his life.

God's plan for Samson, for example, was for him to free Israel from their oppressors. Unfortunately, the execution of his task was contingent on his moral discipline, which he disregarded (Judges 13:5).

John the Baptist is an example of a worthy vessel. God told him that he will convert a large number of souls to the Kingdom. He was filled with the Holy Spirit from his mother's womb for this purpose. Because of the Holy Spirit's impact on him from the birth, he never had the opportunity to pursue a self-seeking life from boyhood until his death (Luke 1:13-17 ).

Judas Iscariot, on the other hand, permitted himself to be used for the divine cause on the opposite side of the coin. He permitted himself to be used negatively to fulfill a divine purpose, namely, to betray the Saviour of mankind, as it had been decreed eons before his birth ( John 6 : 64 ). In the same spiritual environment where Judas Iscariot was raised and eventually turned out to be a thief and betrayer, John the Beloved was raised and eventually became the Lord's most closest disciple ( John 13:23 ).

God has a plan for you long before you were born. The good news is that God has blessed me with biological and spiritual offspring, and we are destined for signs, wonders, and divine purpose. Congratulations if you are one of my children! You're well on your way to achieving your heavenly mission. In the name of Jesus, you will be rewarded with honor.

If you aren't already grafted in, you can do so by committing your life to Christ while praying: Lord Jesus, I confess that I am a sinner. I recognize the price you paid on Calvary's cross for my sins, and I embrace your offer of salvation. Make me a new person with your blood, and write my name in the Book of Life. In Jesus' name, Amen, I thank you for your mercy and forgiveness, as well as for accepting me into your family.

Discover the divine plan for your life and work to make it a reality for the glory of God.
