MADE FOR A PURPOSE – 5: The Secret Of Divine Usefulness

 And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it.” (Joh 2:8)

I still see a matter in this verse. You bade the servants ‘Draw out now’. Until you bid men to draw from this water pot, it remains ordinary water.

Lord, it is as you bid your men to draw from my life that my usefulness can be established. They will not taste the wine unless you asked them to draw from this pot. I cannot tell men to draw from me; it will be presumptuous and arrogant. I cannot introduce myself as having anything to offer men. They have seen those pots before. They have seen their emptiness and what they were used for before this time was ignoble. How will anyone come to draw from a pot that was used to wash their feet before? This bidding must come from you. It must come from Your very mouth otherwise what you have poured into me will be looked down upon as if it is the usual water to washing hands and feet. No one drank from those pots before. They were used to wash hands and feet. If they must now taste the fresh wine therein, it must have come as a bidding from the very throne of grace. Men only rush to hear you because the Father bids them do so. While he was still speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them; and suddenly a voice came out of the cloud, saying,

“This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. Hear Him!”

(Mat 17:5 NKJV)

The shape of the jars hadn’t changed in their eyes. But the content is now fresh. May I remain simple as you have made me. While others struggle with externalities may my inner man remain a priority for me to feed and build. You are content that I remain an earthen vessel in thy hands but with such inner power that makes it clear that it is you. What baffles men about you was not you shape and size, it was what comes from within you makes men to keep asking: “what manner of man is this?” Help me to maintain my ordinariness before men that the excellency of the power flowing through me maybe yours.

Lord, grant me this kind of fresh introduction to thy body. This is the secret behind all men whose services and ministry were well acceptable to your Church. Those who tried to go before you were queried with: “Who made you a prince and a judge over us?”
