A VESSEL unto HONOR

 

SANCTIFIED -- for the Master's use.

2 Timothy 2:21

King James Version

21 If a man therefore purge himself from these, 

he shall be a vessel unto honour, 

sanctified, 

and meet for the master's use, 

and prepared unto every good work.


How can we be good vessels, to serve the LORD?

If God is the FOUNTAIN of LIVING WATERS, and Jesus is the LIVING WATER, then we constantly draw, from their WATER of LIFE.

We need to be sanctified, from the dross in us.

A true born again would know how to be a good vessel.

For he will be instructed by Spirit, each moment.

The Lord's WORD, and WILL, are all he will focus on.

He will also understand what these verses mean.

2 Timothy 2:1

King James Version

2 Thou therefore, 

my son, 

be strong in the grace 

that is in Christ Jesus.


2 Timothy 2:3

King James Version

3 Thou therefore endure hardness

as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.


2 Timothy 2:4

King James Version

4 No man that warreth 

entangleth himself with the affairs of this life

that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.


2 Timothy 2:10

King James Version

10 Therefore I endure all things for the elect's sakes

that they may also obtain the salvation 

which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.


2 Timothy 2:11-14

King James Version

11 It is a faithful saying: 

For if we be dead with him, 

we shall also live with him:

12 If we suffer, 

we shall also reign with him

if we deny him, 

he also will deny us:

13 If we believe not, 

yet he abideth faithful: 

he cannot deny himself.

14 Of these things put them in remembrance, 

charging them before the Lord 

that they strive not about words to no profit

but to the subverting of the hearers.


2 Timothy 2:15

King James Version

15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, 

a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, 

rightly dividing the word of truth.


2 Timothy 2:16

King James Version

16 But shun profane and vain babblings

for they will increase unto more ungodliness.


2 Timothy 2:19

King James Version

19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, 

having this seal, 

The Lord knoweth them that are his. 

And, 

let every one that nameth the name of Christ 

depart from iniquity.


2 Timothy 2:20

King James Version

20 But in a great house 

there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, 

but also of wood and of earth; 

and some to honour

and some to dishonour.


2 Timothy 2:22

King James Version

22 Flee also youthful lusts

but follow righteousness, 

faith, 

charity, 

peace, 

with them that call on the Lord 

out of a pure heart.


2 Timothy 2:23

King James Version

23 But foolish and unlearned questions avoid

knowing that they do gender strifes.


2 Timothy 2:24

King James Version

24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; 

but be gentle unto all men, 

apt to teach, 

patient,


2 Timothy 2:25

King James Version

25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves

if God peradventure will give them repentance 

to the acknowledging of the truth;


With the goal, being:

2 Timothy 2:26

King James Version

26 And that they may recover themselves 

out of the snare of the devil

who are taken captive by him at his will.
