Vessels of honor

What is the contents of your vessel child of God?

Pieter Kirstein

In John 4 we find the account in which the Samaritan woman encountered Jesus. He told her in verse 14 But whosoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

Are you one that hungers and thirst after righteousness or do you allow yourself to be satisfied through worldly and fleshly desires ?

Do you starve your spirit and live to indulge your flesh?

Are you obedient to the admonition given by the Holy Spirit through the Apostle Peter in 1 Peter 2:11 Dearly beloved, I beseech you as aliens and exiles, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul.

That which you continue to feed is what will continue to grow and overpower you.

Junk in = junk out.

If you desire to have a vessel filled with the living water of which the Lord spoke so that He may use you to give drink to the nations from the bounty of Himself being poured as you abide in His Presence then you must turn away from everything which has a defiling effect and influence on your life.

You cannot fill a cup that is already full and the only way to be filled with God is to allow yourself to be emptied of the world and yourself.

The harvest indeed is great but those who are willing to be emptied so that they might be sent into harvest fields are very few. Our lives must become like the prophetic setting in which the Samaritan woman encountered Jesus.

Our earthen vessels must be established like a Jacob’s well overflowing as we are continually filled with God’s Spirit.

True surrender is to completely yield yourself to be raised up as a vessel that He can use to make a difference within the earth.

Those who only live to satisfy their own desires have no eternal impact and shall find themselves greatly ashamed when they stand before the judgment seat of Christ who’s desire it is that all of God’s children shall fulfill the law of love which is a crucified life unto the benefit of others. John 15.

John 4:5 Then came he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.

6 Now Jacob’s well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.

7 There came a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus said unto her, Give me to drink.

8 (For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy food.)

9 Then said the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that you, being a Jew, ask drink of me, who am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.

10 Jesus answered and said unto her, If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that said to you, Give me to drink; you would have asked of him, and he would have given you living water.

11 The woman said unto him, Sir, you have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from where then have you that living water?

12 Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his sons, and his cattle?

13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinks of this water shall thirst again:

14 But whosoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

May you become a labourer to be sent to reap a mighty harvest for the kingdom of God and may you allow yourself to be emptied to be filled with God’s desire and may you say the same as Jesus, i have food to eat that you know not of. My food is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.
Say not, There are yet four months, and then comes harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.

And I pray that at the end of your life you may be able to declare like the Lord in John 17:4 I have glorified you on the earth: I have finished the work which you gave me to do.
