Sunday to Monday | We Are Pots

The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: ‘Come, go down to the potter’s house, and there I will let you hear my words.’ So I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was working at his wheel.The vessel he was making of clay was spoiled in the potter’s hand, and he reworked it into another vessel, as seemed good to him.
Jeremiah 18:1-4

On Sunday, Pastor Dave continued his sermon series on Jeremiah. Vikki Luce and Dick Buss participated in the sermon illustration about how we are pots shaped and formed by our Maker.  

Vikki shared her experiences as a potter and how the clay is worked - much harder than you think!  Sometimes it turns out much differently than originally intended but beautiful nonetheless.  The clay is never wasted just as God never sees anything in us that can't be recycled and made new.  

As an architect, Dick talked about the history of architecture and how there's both form and function.  Just like us!

Some questions to help you reflect on Sunday’s sermon:

  • What do you make of the image of God being the master potter, and we are the clay? (Jeremiah 18:1-4)
  • Ponder the connection of pots having heart and function. What does this mean for you/us spiritually?
  • What do you want to give up to God and allow God to reshape (yatzar) in your life? (Jeremiah 18:4)
  • Where have you chosen to be stuck? How might the God who never gives up on you push you in a new direction? (Jeremiah 18:12)
