Every individual have specific role and functions in a body. Most of the times we take it lightly. Remember that 2 Corinthians 6:16 GOD said we are the living temple of the living GOD and HE wants to live, walk and be our GOD.
For HIM to live in us we need to be able to trust and believe. This only happens when we read the words of GOD (bible). That is the source of food for our spiritual life hunger.
“And yet, O LORD, you are our Father.
We are the clay, and you are the potter.
We all are formed by your hand.”
From that scripture we know that we are clay and our GOD is the potter and we all are formed by HIS hand. It’s an ongoing process. According to an article to ease the making of the jar of clay we need water in that process. In that image, water stands for the WORD OF GOD because without water the shaping process going to be hard and time consuming. I believe the word of GOD has the specific word of promise, encouragement, command and guidance that we needed for problems that we go through in our daily life. This is what the bible called the water of life.
We all know that jar of clay is not perfectly made. It has tons of cracks and very fragile. Those represent us. We are fragile, weak and imperfect and we need GOD and HIS word to live our life so that we know:
2 Corinthians 4:7
“We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great power is from God, not from ourselves.”
It is human to accept the truth we are weak and in need a LORD and Savior to depend on. But in doing this we are going against the world, so most of the time we try to hide those weakness behind bad habits, pride, ego, sin, anger, addictions and rebellious attitude. That’s how my life used to be! I can testify I am the weakest in my family and in school but knowing the truth that GOD made me weak so that I can depend on HIM opened my eyes to the reality.
Try to picture this we are the jar of clay, we are weak and fragile and 2 Corinthians 4:7 says we havea treasure in that jar that is shining through our weakness but we always tend to patch the cracks with our excuses, sins, addictions, temper, anger and many more to give an impression that we are prefect. You guys know what I am talking. But CHRIST wants us to show that we are weak and let HIM shine through our weakness, we have to believe HE will. Don’t patch our weakness anymore, but boast about it, like how Paul did it throughout his life.
Let’s accept who we are and what we are called to be. Remember we have a purpose in the body. Ask GOD to reveal it to you, and remember that we need the word of GOD to get through the process of molding. We need that water so that when the potter shaping us the clay we don't get hurt so much.
