The worker - Ruth 4:13-22, 1 Chronicles 2:9-55, 1 Chronicles 4:1-23, 1 Sam 1:1-8.

They were the potters....., resident potters who worked for the king. (1 Chronicles 4:23)

How often do I become so full of self that I forget I am only a mere potter for God.  That He is The Master Potter and that everything is coming through me from Him.  I am only a vessel for Him to use, to bring glory to Him.

This day is Easter - a day that represents a new covenant between God and His people.  It isn't because of anything I have produced from the clay.  It is because of Christ and His works that I am free.  All are free that abide In Him. 

There is the story of the scientist that was going to prove God wasn't real by producing a diamond from a piece of coal.  That He was able to produce the same beauty that God did.  God agreed to the challenge.  As the man bent down to pick up the coal, God told him, "Wait  - you have to create your own piece of coal".   Being a resident potter, I am only able to produce from what He provides.  It is His clay, His wheel, His Hands which guide me.  Again, I am only a tool. 

I pray that in my growth In Him, I will never forget that it is because of the sacrifice that Christ made for me that I may be with our Abba eternally.  It isn't because of my works, my gifts, or talents. 

Only in Him - The King.
