Life in the Potter's Hand
Identity in Christ
February 27 • Jerry Orthner
God sent the prophet Jeremiah to the potter’s house for a lesson on living a life submitted to a purposeful Potter’s hands. The clay cries, “I have been slammed on to a hard spinning wheel. I’m flying out of control. I am being squashed and squeezed and I know a fire lies ahead”. And Potter (God) says, “Carefully I threw you on to just the right spot. Your imperfections are being smoothed as you spin by the loving pressure of my hands. I am holding you and molding you, proud and pleased with my creation. And the fire that lies ahead will only enhance your beauty”. When life doesn’t make sense, as it often doesn’t these days, can we trust it all to the Potter’s hands?
Note: A table of remembrance (Communion) will also be part of our service this weekend.
