Vessels Wanted!

This will be a short and direct to the point article. It is simply an invitation from our Maker, He is looking for vessels to use for His work. 
.
The field is large but the labourers, I mean faithful labourers are few. Many are held captive in the bondage of sexual immoralities, indecent dressing, fashion abuse, internet and so on. Yet there are few laborers to get them out of this mess. 
God is counting on you for use, how ready are you for His work? Sin sinks but His grace is available to lift you up, let your life count. 
.
It doesn't mean you must start as a minister or a public speaker but more importantly, let your life count, we are the Bible the world is reading, let Christ be read in your life. 
.
Making yourself available means total commitment, commitment to meet the needs of people not necessary in monetary terms although it’s part of it but in other aspects of life too.
.
Somebody is out there who needs your help to grow, are you ready to help such?
.
Making yourself available means being sensitive to people you come in contact with, you don’t come in contact with people and vice versa by mistake, there is something to do in the life of that person. 
.
Being available means that you realize that God is ordering your steps and life by bringing people to your path, online or offline. The more available you make yourself to Him, the more He will use you.
.
A vessel for use will see people as God sees them. That someone open up to you does not automatically appoint you as a judge, let the church (which is us) stop seeing people with their confessed sin but see them as a ready vessel for the Master’s use! You were once a sinner but pulled out by His grace, God therefore sees you as a new creature and not with your past sins as it is erased. 
.
If you then professed to be a little Christ or a child of this God that does not deal with you according to your sin but with mercy; then you have to act like Him and help others but not cast out.
.
You were planned for God’s pleasure, formed for God’s family, created to become like Christ, shaped for service, and made for a mission! Each and every day of our lives we have the opportunity to be used of God. 
.
Will today be the day you will allow God to use you, to tell the wonderful news about Jesus? Isaiah 6:8, can you say here I am too? 
.
Remember, God is counting on you to deliver the world, to save the oppressed and preach His word, are you available?
