  • 19 You will say to me then, "Why does he still find fault? For who can resist his will?"
    20 But who are you, O man, to answer back to God? Will what is molded say to its molder, "Why have you made me like this?"
    21 Has the potter no right over the clay, to make out of the same lump one vessel for honorable use and another for dishonorable use?
    22 What if God, desiring to show his wrath and to make known his power, has endured with much patience vessels of wrath prepared for destruction,
    23 in order to make known the riches of his glory for vessels of mercy, which he has prepared beforehand for glory--
    24 even us whom he has called, not from the Jews only but also from the Gentiles?
    25 As indeed he says in Hosea, "Those who were not my people I will call 'my people,' and her who was not beloved I will call 'beloved.'"
    26 "And in the very place where it was said to them, 'You are not my people,' there they will be called 'sons of the living God.'"
    27 And Isaiah cries out concerning Israel: "Though the number of the sons of Israel be as the sand of the sea, only a remnant of them will be saved,
    28 for the Lord will carry out his sentence upon the earth fully and without delay."
    29 And as Isaiah predicted, "If the Lord of hosts had not left us offspring, we would have been like Sodom and become like Gomorrah."

    2018-09-19   A potter creates vessels of varying shapes and sizes depending on the purpose of each container. Those created vessels were not made by their own requests or effort, but by the will and design of the potter.

이해하기(Understanding)
It is not wise or healthy to object or complain about God choosing because it does not match our definition or expectation of what is fair. This is because God is the Creator and Lord, and we are only His creation. Paul uses the analogy that just as a potter creates vessels differently for different purposes, so God also chooses what He wants to do and with whom (vv. 19-24). Paul refers to the words in Hosea to emphasize that God loves the Gentiles as much as any Jew. Paul also refers to the Old Testament book Isaiah. He references the promise that God will surely save the remnant and if He had left His chosen, they would end up like Sodom and Gomorrah (vv. 25-29).

적용하기(Applying)
Who is God?
God is our Maker and uses us according to His will. Just as a potter has control over the vessels he creates, God has complete control over everything He has created. Humbly seek how God can use you as a vessel, and willingly offer your life to fulfill his will.

What is the lesson for me(us)?
Before complaining about the difficulties in understanding God, look at yourself first. Describe your understanding of the love of God that accepts you as His child even though you are weak and lacking? God has chosen you because He is in control.

기도하기(Praying)
God, You are the potter. Thank You for intentionally and specifically creating me. Help me to see how You want to use me to fulfill Your purpose.
