1 John 3:3-6
2 Timothy 3:17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
If you are a corrupt minister, you are just there by the wisdom of God. You may be gaining materially, but what is material gain? Can you compare material gain with eternal gain? In spite of your pollution of the church, God in His wisdom still keeps you there because you are serving His eternal plan.
But you were not created a corrupt minister. It only happened that there were some things in your life which you needed to settle but did not. That is why you became corrupt and now qualify as a vessel for dishonorable use. There are things in your life that should be purged; things that should be perfected, but you neglected them and refused to do what is right. That is why you are being put to dishonorable use.
Your name is in the second register, but not in the first, which is the Book of Life. You are like a scaffold the Lord is using. After He finishes with you, He will discard you because you are not part of the building.
2 Timothy 2:21a, “If any man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour.” This scripture clearly explains that how God uses you rests with you. You are not doing spiritual cleansing, that is why you are not a vessel unto honor.
You say you are a preacher, but God and the angels know who you really are – a vessel unto dishonor. Satan also knows because he is the one using you. God is keeping quiet because you are still serving a purpose. “I will drive them out little by little, If I drive them all out, wild beasts will take over.” It is wisdom that allows you in God's service.
If today you hear the voice of the Lord and take a decision to purge yourself of those things, to repent of those things, to change your life and comply to scriptures, there shall be a transformation. Angels will do a transfer and your name will move from the second book to the Book of life. That matter is in your hand!
If any man will purge himself from lying, impurities, abominable things and corrupt heart, the Lord will transform him because he is not eternally predestined to corruption. It is your choice that has put you in darkness and by your choice you can come out into the light of God. Flee, therefore, those lusts and follow righteousness that you might be a vessel unto honor.
Thought for the day:
God is no respecter of persons. As you lay your bed so you shall lie on it.
Song for the day:
Come and make my heart Your home, come and be everything I am and all I know…..
Bible reading for the day:
Numbers 1-2; Mark 3:1-21
