Jeremiah 18 Devotions by Stephen Taylor

Jeremiah 18:3-6

So I went down to the potter's house, and I saw him working at the wheel. But the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred in his hands, so the potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as seemed best to him. Then the word of the Lord came to me. He said, "Can I not do with you, Israel, as this potter does?" declares the Lord. "Like clay in the hand of the potter, so are you in my hand, Israel.

I would rather be clay in the hands of my God than to be meat in the enemy’s grinder! You see, regardless of how we feel or what we want, change is gonna happen. Whether we are hardened by this world or softened by the Lord, change is a-coming. Only Christ began and ended the same way, perfect. The rest of us are born into fallen flesh, and that's why the only hope of salvation is found in Jesus Christ. But that requires change. Changing from serving our flesh to serving the Lord. We can't stay the same and enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Jesus tells us plainly in:

Matthew 18:3- And He said: "Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of Heaven.

This isn't a physical transformation but a spiritual one. One where our hearts are made pure and righteous through His precious blood. We either get harder or softer in this life. The world will tell you to toughen up and take it like a man, but Christ calls us to humble ourselves and respond like a child to His call upon our lives! Let's trust and believe that the One who created us and then died for us knows us better than anyone and can take care of us both in this life and the next!

Matthew 18:4- Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven.

God bless! I love you all, but His love saves! Glory, Honor, and Praise both now and forever to Papa God, Jesus Christ our King, and the Holy Spirit!
