Pastor Melissa Scott continues her teaching on The Potter’s House.
We’ve talked about Romans 8, “To be conformed to the likeness, the image of His Son.” And in Philippians 1:6 “He begun a good work.” He begun a good work, which He’ll bring to fruition, to completion. But too many times it’s looked over.
I don’t have anything in the equation except faith and trusting Him. And that’s what all of this boils down to. We can sift all this away and ask the question, Do you trust?
I’m sorry to say it like this and I don’t mean to be blasphemous. But do you trust the one Potter, the one who died for you enough to say, “I commit my life to you”? And quit trusting the flesh?
I got letters from people this week that made my heart melt. This woman who just loves the teaching, she said, “They kicked me out of the church because I smoked cigarettes.” They kicked her out of the church. And I thought is this woman going to be turned off on God because of this, because she got kicked out of the church because of that? And there’s more.
I get many letters from people that say, “I have an alcohol problem. And when my church found out, they kicked me out.” I’m sorry. Somewhere the message is lost for me because my Bible says Jesus came to save that which was lost.
But do you trust the one Potter, the one who died for you enough to say, “I commit my life to you”? And quit trusting the flesh?
