We serve a merciful, compassionate and gracious God, God will rain His mercy over us all in Jesus name. He will continually make us vessels of His mercy in Jesus Name. Thank You Lord, for in Jesus Mighty name we pray.
TEXT: Romans 9:20-24
TITLE: VESSEL OF MERCY
v20 “But indeed, O man, who are you to reply against God? Will the thing formed say to him who formed it, “Why have you made me like this?”
v21 Does not the potter have power over the clay, from the same lump to make one vessel for honour and another for dishonour?
V22 What if God, wanting to show His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath prepared for destruction,
v23 and that He might make known the riches of His glory on the VESSELS OF MERCY, which He had prepared beforehand for glory,
v24 even us whom He called……..?
I pray that today we will all become vessels of God’s mercy in Jesus Name.
1) Mercy is one of the greatest attributes of God. Deut 4:31 For the Lord your God is a merciful God, He will not forsake you nor destroy you…..
2) Mercy is the mysterious deep love of God upon man. Romans 9:15-16 For He says to Moses, I will have mercy on whomever I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whomever I will have compassion. So then it is not of him who wills, nor of him who runs, but of God who shows mercy.
3) Mercy is the opposite of anger. God should remember mercy in anger. Habb 2:3
4) Mercy is the greatest wealth of God. Psalm103:8 He’s merciful, gracious, plenteous in mercy. Both righteous and unrighteous will find food to eat, so also rain and sunshine come over their heads.
I pray that the mercy of God will locate us today in Jesus name. Amen!
WHO IS A VESSEL OF MERCY?
1) Vessel of mercy are those prepared for glory. They are specially chosen by God. You are not ordinary. You don’t have what everybody has. God chose Jacob before glory. He loved Jacob and hates Esau. Romans 9:13.
2) Vessel of mercy are made for honour. God has power to make one good and the other for evil. Romans 9:21 . It is mercy of God that brought David to be made a king instead of Saul. Mercy was withdrawn from Saul and was given to David. 1 Samuel 16:1 .
I pray the grace of God will find us and make us carriers /vessel of His mercy in Jesus Name. God will establish His mercy covenant with us. He will continually show us His mercy in Jesus Name.
3) Vessels of mercy are specially called. Romans 9:24 . God can call anybody and choose to use them. Acts 9:1-9, Mercy of God turned mission of Saul of destruction to mission of Evangelism.
I pray that in any way we have been misbehaving, God will show us His mercy and turn our hearts around and use us for His glory.
4) All vessels of mercy know that it is not their power but by God’s mercy. Gen 32:10 Jacob said he is not worthy of all the mercy he received from God. God prospered Jacob so great by His mercy and Jacob knew it is not by his power.
I pray that God will enlarge our coast. Our little one will become many in Jesus Name.
5) Vessel of God carry special wisdom. No wonder Jacob sent gifts ahead of him to appease his brother Esau after separation of over 20yrs. He humbled himself “bowed himself to the ground seven times, until he came near to his brother” Genesis 32:13-20, Genesis 33:3 . Vessels of mercy know how to deal with enemies, friends, colleagues, Landlord/landlady, their Pastors, Co-workers in His vineyard.
It is a great joy to be a vessel of mercy. I pray that we will not be vessels of wrath fitted for destruction in Jesus Name. He raised Pharaoh for destruction. That will never be our portion in Jesus Name. Saul the king, God took the kingdom from him and gave to David. Vessel of mercy always take good things from the vessels of wrath. We will not be vessels of wrath in Jesus name. Amen!
Let us thank God for His sustaining mercy over our lives and throughout the lockdown periods globally.
Say Oh Lord arise and have mercy on me and my family because the time to favour us, the set time is now in Jesus Name.
Say Oh Lord I decree and declare as for me and my family we will continually be vessels of Your mercy in Jesus Name.
Father by Your mercy, fill me and my family with the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord in Jesus Name.
Thank Him for answered prayers. Amen.
As you go out this morning and throughout this week, the presence of the Most High God will go with you. The Hand of the Lord for mercy, favour, peace and joy unspeakable will rest on you. This will be the best week you have ever seen in Jesus Name. Amen!
Please do have a great week ahead and go with God. Amen!
