THE POTTER'S HOUSE

This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: 2 “Go down to the potter’s house, and there I will give you my message.” 3 So I went down to the potter’s house, and I saw him working at the wheel. 4 But the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred in his hands; so, the potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as seemed best to him.

Before we delve into the topic of the day it is important that we discuss the meaning of the word to remold. What does it mean to be remolded? To remold or to be remolded simply means to change the appearance, structure, or character of something. Remolding can also be referred to as a change of an idea, a system, or a habit. This means that when life takes a different turn and goes contrary to our expectations but we want to experience a change of story, the first place we should think of going to, before exploring other alternatives; is the church. This is clearly illustrated in the opening scripture as God tells Jeremiah to go to the potter’s house and, there God would cause Him to hear His message. The opening scripture further highlights that in the potter’s hand (which symbolizes in God’s hands), a marred vessel is given a new lease of life. It was put in the potter’s hand and was formed into another vessel, according to the specifications of the potter. Likewise, in the church setting, once we stop striving with God and start aligning ourselves with the instructions found in His word, He remolds our lives and causes us to function according to His perfect will. This happens when we avail ourselves before Him, to be taught and to fellowship with other believers in the local church setting. In His presence, He causes us to be transformed by the sent word of God. It may even seem as if the entire service was centered around us and the needs that we wanted addressed. God the potter, through the person of the Holy spirit is always present in every service to give our lives the desired makeover. He gives our lives new direction, and gives strength to those who are discouraged. However, I would like you to ask yourself this question, how will God cause your life to be transformed if you do not take time to go to His house where the sent word of God is able to address all the questions of your life? That is why God encourages us in the book of Hebrews chapter 10:25, not to cultivate the bad habit of missing church. If we want to flourish in every aspect of our lives we need to be planted in a church.

We need to cultivate a habit of attending services regularly, and not only, if and when we please. Let God's word rule your life.
