Vessel of Honor
Ever thought about this? Christians say that they serve a Holy God, that their lives are governed by the Holy Bible, that they want to spend eternity in a Holy Heaven, and that they are filled with the Holy Spirit. And yet, it is taboo in most churches today to speak about the subject of Holiness! Anyone who dares to mention it is thought to be super-spiritual, or unfashionable, or even Pharisaical. And the devil just laughs as one of his greatest deceptions continues to infect the lives of so many church members. Good is called evil, light is called darkness, sweet is called bitter (Isaiah 5:20) … and holiness is called outdated, old-fashioned, and obsolete.
In the very last letter he ever wrote, the Apostle Paul emphasized to Timothy how important it was to depart from iniquity, flee lusts, and follow righteousness. “If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use” (2 Timothy 2:21). He wanted his young protégé to be a Vessel of Honor, so that his life could be useful and effective in God’s Kingdom.
