Jeremiah 18

Verse of the Day: V4 “And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.”

1.  God is Perfect

V4 “And the vessel that he made of clay ...”

The skilful potter already knows the final outcome, design, beauty and function of the vessel before he even start making and molding the plain and muddy clay. Similarly the perfect God already knows the final outcome, design, beauty and function of His people before He even start making and molding His people made in His image and who believe in Him. The workmanship or function of God’s people who believe in Him is ultimately to do good works through loving Him and obeying and walking in His commandments.

Ephesians 2:10 “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”

2.  God is Forgiving

V4 “And the vessel that He made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, ...”

God never gives up on Christians even when we fail Him time and time again. Just like the potter who makes the marred or spoilt vessel again and again into perfection, God shall forgive us again and again as we confess and forsake our sins. It may take years but we shall finally be the perfect vessels as God calls us home in heaven one day!

Revelation 22:5 “And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.”

3.  God is Good 

V4 “And the vessel that He made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.”

The beauty and perfection of the vessel shall reflect upon the beauty and perfection of the potter. Similarly, the beauty and perfection of Christians shall reflect the beauty and perfection of the good God. However, there is a great price of suffering and humbling of Christians in order for us to attain perfection for the eternal glory of Christ Jesus.

1 Peter 5:10 “But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.”

Prayer of the Week

Dearest God, please help me to be perfect as You are perfect.
