The Potter

Can I not, O house of Israel, deal with you as this potter does?” declares the LORD. “Behold, like the clay in the potter’s hand, so are you in My hand, O house of Israel. Jeremiah 18:6

Throughout The Bible , God speaks about us being his clay and he is our Potter. However we live in a world who rejects the Potter. We as the clay, believe we have superior knowledge , to the one who created us. It seems foolish when you analyze it with this analogy, however this is exactly how humanity has become

Imagine if you allowed , the Potter, to mold you into what he had intended from the beginning? Could the outcome of your life have been better? However we are rebellious and stubborn people, we want control, we want pleasure, regardless of the consequences.

“But they will say, ‘It’s hopeless! For we are going to follow our own plans, and each of us will act according to the stubbornness of his evil heart.’ Jeremiah 18:12

Instead of following your Creator, you follow your own plans blindly. Why? Because you want to be your own god, regardless of the consequences. However destruction and death are near, but you don’t care, as long as you are calling the shots!

On the contrary, who are you, O man, who answers back to God? The thing molded will not say to the molder, “Why did you make me like this,” will it? Romans 9:20

It seems ridiculous the creation would argue back with the Creator, but that is what we do! How foolish are we, do you have to wonder why our world is such a disaster? Listen to your Creator, allow him to mold you into what you were designed to be.

You cant save yourself, we can only be saved by the Savior Jesus Christ!

    When you think about all God tells us that refers to earth and growing. The clay, representing man and dust of the ground. Plant life that we reproduce with our roots in the soil creating fruit from the vine, the tree and all plants as they reach to heaven as we all should. Sorry I go on and on with your sight but I get such good visuals of what you are trying to explain. Have a great last week of 2018.
