Is Your Pot Too Small? - Part 3

Grace and Peace Be Unto You!

Another blessed week and God is and continues to be good. If you are starting here and have not read part 1 & 2, please go back to the beginning of the “Pot” series. Ok, let’s continue this journey. Jesus declares in St. John 15 “You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you that you should bring forth fruit and that your fruit should remain”. As you have been reading in these blogs, you should recognize that we are called and chosen to be producers. Once we understand who we are, as children of God, we can then go and do the works of Him that sent us. In the previous blogs, I’ve dealt with the characteristics of a seed. At this moment, my prayer is that the “Seed” picture is clear for you. Now, the seed needs to grow and mature. So the question becomes, what makes the seed grow?

The journey of life as it flows always creates the needed opportunities for growth and maturity. God in His Infinite Wisdom and Design will use certain circumstances and situations to pull up, pull out, grow and mature what He placed on the inside. It’s the process to maturity. In developing the relationship with God by reading, studying and being taught the Word of God, praying, attend worship services (no getting around that one) and actively engaging in a life of praise & worship, we discover what pleases and displeases God. It is then that we should wholeheartedly began to pursue God in what I call the “addition and subtraction walk”. The laying aside every besetting {moving out of the proper place and mindset} weight and sin (Hebrews 12:1) and the putting on the Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 13:14). Look at the David example in Psalm 51 & 139; Create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit in me (51:10) and search me and try me to know my heart and thoughts, see any wicked way in me and lead in the path everlasting (139 vs 23,24). That’s the heart cry of a true child of God…”I want to live a life pleasing to you Lord and anything not right in me, take it out”. If this is really our desire and pursuit, it begins to happen and then it must be tested and proven.

Think and ask yourself; Do I consistently live a life of character and integrity or a sometime compromiser? When that family member, the supervisor or a coworker is working “the nerve”, do I resort to words and responses not reflective of my confession or do I maintain prayerful self-control? Can I honestly say those around me recognize that I’m a child of God or is my light so dark that I can’t see my own lifestyle? Think and answer honestly. As you look at it, I want you to receive this insight. Each situation, circumstance and test comes to show what’s in you, whether you are growing or if you are stuck and dying? I know some might need to go pray right now because you don’t like the answer and I want you to go to God. But before you go, take this with you. In order to grow and mature, you must be changed, reshaped and molded into His Image to be able to properly reflect God and His Glory. This journey is not to kill you, but to mature you and make you into the producer you were created to be. There are greater things ahead and journey continues…
