Genesis 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground
When he was speaking this morning, he talked about us being dirt. I got to thinking about that. It is true. By washing us in Living Water or Sacrificial Blood, we become clay that He can fashion into a usable vessel for His service. Have you ever tried building anything with dirt? Really doesn't hold it's shape. Add some liquid and it becomes clay that will take on any shape the potter wishes. And become stronger as it is tried by fire.
Isaiah 64:8 But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.
