Vessel of Honour

We all know the first miracle that Jesus did at the wedding at Cana recorded in Luke 2. When there was no wine, there was an expectation from His mother to do something about it. Jesus told the servants of the house to bring six stone water jars which were outside the house used for purification purpose to be filled with water.

There would have been other jars and the original wine jars too. But he chooses the least valuable ones to be re-filled with water.

These vessels kept serving their purpose cleansing, refreshing and purifying everyone who walked the long dusty road.

Approximately each vessel would have contained 100 litres of water. They did not just serve a few people who walked in, but many families both young and old. Also, the water inside the stone jar constantly cleaned the jar as people took water from it.

Suddenly the eyes of Jesus fell on these empty ones which were once full but now empty by constantly serving others. He did a miracle with those dishonourable vessels and brought out the best wine for the feast.

God is not looking at where you are positioned or if you have a title to serve Him. 

You may be hidden in your kitchen praying for your hurting neighbour, counselling and encouraging another friend over the phone in the midst of your pain and trouble, or quietly cooking and taking a meal to a family who is in need. The eyes of the Lord is on you to refill you with fresh new anointing and grace.

All that He is looking for is a holy and available person who has taken the time to set themselves apart for His purpose and constantly serving Him without complaining or any expectation.

He knows how to bring honour and to lift up the hidden person. 

Don’t get discouraged, you are going to be noticed by the master of heaven, to be used for every good work and for His glorious purpose.

2 Tim 2:20 Now in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver but also of wood and clay, some for honorable use, some for dishonorable(21) Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from what is dishonorable, he will be a vessel for honorable use, set apart as holy, useful to the master of the house, ready for every good work.
