The Potter and the Clay
  • Jeremiah 181-6 This is the word that came to
    Jeremiah from the Lord 2"Go down to the potter's
    house, and there I will give you my message." 3So
    I went down to the potter's house, and I saw him
    working at the wheel. 4But the pot he was shaping
    from the clay was marred in his hands so the
    potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as
    seemed best to him. 5Then the word of the Lord
    came to me 6"O house of Israel, can I not do
    with you as this potter does?" declares the Lord.
    "Like clay in the hand of the potter, so are you
    in my hand, O house of Israel.

The Potter and the Clay
  • For Human Clay to be effectively shaped and
    ultimately used it must cooperate with the
    Potter
  • We are clay with a will

5
The Potter and the Clay
Cooperate Willing to work together for a
common goal.
6
Cooperative Clay must
  • 1. Be Free of IMPURITIES.
  • Proverbs 2813-14 He who conceals his sins does
    not prosper, but whoever confesses and renounces
    them finds mercy. 14Blessed is the man who always
    fears the Lord, but he who hardens his heart
    falls into trouble.

7
Cooperative Clay must
  • 2. Remain CENTERED on the wheel.
  • Romans 919b-21 For who resists his will? But
    who are you, O man, to talk back to God? "Shall
    what is formed say to him who formed it, 'Why did
    you make me like this?' " 21Does not the potter
    have the right to make out of the same lump of
    clay some pottery for noble purposes and some for
    common use?

8
Cooperative Clay must
  • 3. Be RESPONSIVE to the Potters touch.
  • 1 Peter 56 Humble yourselves, therefore, under
    God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due
    time.

9
RESPONSIVE to the Potters touch.
10
Three areas that will help us as earthen vessels
to be responsive to our Maker
  • Submission
  • Solitude
  • Stillness
  • 2 Corinthians 47 But we have this treasure in
    jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing
    power is from God and not from us.

11
Cooperative Clay must
