What Do Wine, Fish, and Clay Have in Common?

on October 16, 2016

Jeremiah 18:4– “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.”



Great cooks put unusual ingredients together on national television and end up with mouth-watering meals and desserts.

I thought I’d try it.

I opened the refrigerator and took out a little of this and a little of that.

Everything went into the skillet. Fifteen minutes later I dished it onto plates and set them on the table.

“Not half bad,” my husband remarked as he reached for a second glass of water.

I smiled.

It was nothing like the account of Jesus turning water into wine at a wedding, or when He took five loaves and two fishes and fed 5,000 people, but still…

What about Jesus completely changing a person?

You may know someone who had a hardened heart, unwholesome habits, spoke unkindly to others, made life miserable for his family. Then, after responding to the gospel, he changed completely.

His outward smile now gave evidence of his changed heart.

His speech, his habits, his attitude—all of it changed when he met the Lord.

Jesus says He’s the potter and we are the clay.

If we let Him, He is willing to make something beautiful out of us—

a vessel He can use for His good purpose.
