Text of the Day

 

 

 

 

DECEMBER 22

 

 If a man therefore purge himself. . . he shall be a vessel unto

 honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work—2. Tim. 2:21.

 

  If a man desire honour from God, let him not fail to seek it in God’s appointed way along the pathway of humility; for the Lord gives His favours to the humble. If you would be a vessel fit for the Master’s use and a vessel of honour, humble yourself under the mighty hand of God and He will exalt you in due time. Do not be in a hurry about it either; but “whatsoever thy hand findth to do, do it with thy might,” beginning and ever continuing to cleanse your earthen vessel, that it may be fit for the Master’s use.
