It’s another red letter day, and I want to show you an exciting progression that jumped out at me last night.
I have manifested Your name to the men whom You gave Me out of the world; they were Yours and You gave them to Me, and they have kept Your word. - John 17:6 NASB
- God found me in the world
- God – the giver – gave me to Jesus
- When I was still in the world, I belonged to God
- I now belong to Jesus
When I was a self-absorbed, self-centered worldling, God found me. When my only interest in God was how He made me look and what He could do for me, He handed me over to Jesus – no wrapping paper – no gift card – just me.
Jesus received me (and you too!) as if I were a lump of raw material and started working on forming a model of Himself. [Tweet This]
The tools He uses to work this clay are His word and His wonderful name.
You, Lord, are the potter. I want to look like you, Jesus. Help me to be pliable and conformable to your image. Have Your way in me today.
Don’t forget to turn the light on.
