2 Timothy 2:20-21

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. 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 three: THE SILVER

Silver, although earthen has undergone purification which makes it precious, silver is therefore valued as an asset.

This group of Christians are particularly precious to God; they are His asset. They have gone through processes of purification and have been made pure (see John 13:10). They do not struggle with sin because it is no more part of them. They are exemplary; others learn from them. 1 Timothy 4:12.

Note that articles of silver were found in the inner court of the old tabernacle. This group belong to the inner court; they know God experientially and doing His will is now their utmost desire. Their works and even their lives are sacrifices pleasing to the Lord (see Rom 12:1, Phil 2:17,2 Tim 4:6). Heaven is their reality and home.

This is God's word for this category “let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not." Galatians 6:9 (KJV)

Go into today knowing that to be a vessel unto honor, you must be washed in the Lamb's blood, filled with the Spirit and determined to live a life characterized by constant submission to the authority of the Holy Spirit; He is the Holy Ghost and fire whose presence purifies us. That is the real function of Holy Ghost fire (see matt 3:11, Lu 3:16). It is fire that purifies silver.

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