In The Potter's Hands
Jeremiah was led to visit the potter's house. The potter took a lump of clay and started to mold a vessel. It became marred. But instead of throwing the clay away, the potter made it into another vessel. Jeremiah was given a message. Let's consider the message he received.
1. God has a purpose for our lives.
- Just as the potter had a purpose for the clay, God has a purpose for our lives.
- Just as a good potter would never design a poor vessel, you can be sure God has something good and meaningful planned for you.
2. Our lives can be marred by sin.
3. God can reshape our lives
