“Yet, O Lord, you are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are the work of your hand.”
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.”
“But who are you, O man, to talk back to God? Shall what is formed say to him who formed it, ‘Why did you make me like this?’ Does not the potter have the right to make out of the same lump of clay some pottery for noble purposes and some for common use?”
Sovereign Lord, you do not create from a distance, but touch and form all things by your skilled hands.
Until you mold us we are like raw clay without purpose or definition. With your craftsmanship working in our lives we become centered, shaped and beautiful.
Thank you for Christ’s willingness to be used for your purpose—to take on the form he created from the dust of the earth and become the vessel of our salvation.
