851 Prepared for Good Work - 2 Timothy 2:20-21

• 5 min

Are you qualified to serve?   2 Timothy 2:20-21 says "Now in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver but also of wood and clay, some for honorable use, some for dishonorable. Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from what is dishonorable, he will be a vessel for honorable use, set apart as holy, useful to the master of the house, ready for every good work." (ESV)   Sometimes, I meet people who think their job as a Christ-follower is to just stay out of trouble. They don't think of themselves as being very spiritual so they plan to sneak into heaven. They're just trying to stay out of trouble until they die.   I started today's reading in verse 20. Paul makes an analogy in verse 20. In a large house, there are some special rooms, and some special furniture and some everyday stuff. If we cleanse ourselves from "these things," he says, we "will be a vessel for honor, useful to the Master, prepared for every good work."   These things means the things he talked about before hand. We need to avoid worldly and empty talk (vs. 16), and abstain from wickedness (vs. 19). But when we do, and when we're prepared to talk about our faith (vs. 15), we're prepared for every good work.   So are you prepared? We're working on it at Follower of One. We practice living our faith daily and in our online community we engage to integrate our faith into our daily lives better. You can get involved and begin growing purposely in your faith in just a minute or two a day. Head over to to create a profile and take part in the next mission trip.
