In this short sermon, we are going to answer the question found in Romans 9:20-21: Does the clay say to the potter why did you make me this way?
But before we attempt to answer that question, let us outline the context of the scripture above.
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?” Does not the potter have power over the clay, from the same lump to make one vessel for honor and another for dishonor?Romans 9:20-21.
Does The Clay Say To The Potter Why Did You Make Me This Way?
In all amounts of truth, the clay cannot say to the potter why did you make me this way?
As a matter of fact, the clay does not have any contribution to what becomes of its making because it is the potter that chooses to design it the way he wants.
There are some that he will make a special design for based on how much he wants to sell it.
But yet, others that will have a lesser price tag will not be as nice and valuable as the expensive ones.
But the next scripture however shows us that based on how we handle ourselves, we can turn out to be the most valuable clay for the potter.
But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work.2 Timothy 2:20-22.
As we all evidence, if we can cleanse and purify ourselves, we can become that vessel of honor God uses for every good work
