Earthen Vessels

It continually amazes me that God chooses to use mankind to accomplish His purposes on this earth.  We are so broken, so faulty, and our behavior maligns His name over and over again.  We misrepresent Him by our words and deeds, and still, He involves us!  Look at the Jews in the Old Testament.  They were to be God’s chosen people, proclaiming His name and goodness to all nations, but instead they became insulary and hoarded God’s goodness for themselves, despising the Gentiles instead of reaching out to them.  How guilty of the same we can be!

God must really be a big God to be able to involve us and still get His job done.  I have to keep reminding myself of His bigness when I see the disastrous consequences of the sinful behaviors of men masquerading as the “will of god.”

Isaiah 14:27 – For the LORD of hosts has purposed, And who will annul it? His hand is stretched out, And who will turn it back?
