A Useful Vessel
2 Corinthians 3:5-6 (KJB) Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God; 6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.
A man is either considered a useful or useless vessel for sowing seeds of God’s message.
It is important to note that a man’s spiritual valuableness for the ministry of the gospel message does not ever depend upon his own goodness, or social standing, but solely upon the goodness and grace of God either working or being ignored in a man’s life.
God’s message is never hindered by mankind in any way. In fact, God promises in many places in His Word that his divine message will continue to reach lost souls never being impeded by any person or event at work in this world (Isaiah 55:11).
All that is required is a personal desire for things of God and a willingness to serve in the lives of others according to God’s will and way.
A man cannot keep the law of God by himself, however, he can accomplish that which God intends according to His divine power and purposes at work in his life for our spiritual capabilities are divinely given of God and never of ourselves.
