2 Tim 2:20-21

20. But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. 21. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work. KJV

Category Two: The Wood

This category possesses all the attributes of the clay except that they know much about God; they know what is right but will not do it. From a distance they have the looks of a Christian but are far from God in reality. They are characterized by their ability to cause confusion; Jesus speaking about them said "But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in" -Matthew 23:13 (KJV). They can preach, pray and even speak in tongues but are hypocrites. They have the letter but not the Spirit of God’s word.

Just as wood burns in fire, their ‘good works’ will burn when tested with fire except they repent and come to Jesus.

This is what God requires from these persons

“I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. Revelation 3:18 (KJV)

Go into today knowing that good works alone does not lead to God. Jesus is knocking at the door of your heart; will you open up to him?

Prayer: Father, make me a vessel unto honor; sanctified, and meet for the master's use and prepared unto every good work. Amen

-Dr. James Emmanuel.
