Jeremiah 18:2

GO DOXN 2 THE POTTER'S HOUSE,AND THERE I WILL GIVE YOU MY MESSAGE(JEREMIAH 18:2) When God spoke 2 Jeremiah,He didn't just give him some information to pass on 2 Israel.He sent him 2 a potter's house 2 get the full impact of an illustration.It goes back 2 God's practice of sometimes giving us pictures rather than words.If Jeremiah could see a potter at work,he would know God's heart in a way that nothing else could show him.That's true 4 us 2.If our lives are 2 have any message at all,it isn't going 2 come from an exchange of information with God.It's going 2 come from experience-God at work in our lives,showing us what He is like,giving us visual aids 2 things like His mercy,purpose,and power.That has always been this way.He didn't just tell Israel He was their deliverer,He actually delivered0them fron Egypt.He didn't just tell them He was a holy judge;He judged them all the way 2 Babylon.He didn't just give us a description of Himself;He came in the flesh as Jesus.When God wants 2 get a point across He speaks the language of experience.That should be a pattern 4 us as well.The wold will not be changed by Christians who speak a lot of words(though the gospel in the form of words is important).Words won't mean much unless there's a picture 2 go with them:a picture of Jesus,of faith,of Christianity,of changed lives.With Jeremiah,God spoke of Himself through a visual illustration of a potter.With us,He often speaks of Himself through a visual illustration of a redeemed child of God.. . . IN DEED:- God is speaking 2 your wold.How could He not?He's the living Word.The living Word is not interested in being silent;He's interested a calling a lost wold to Himself,and His voice- His illustrations,metaphors,pictures,and descriptions - are found primary in the people who have experienced Him and who worship Him.Those who have gone down 2 the Potter's house - who have spent an extraordinary amount of time intently watching God and admiring His work - are those who are entrusted with this message:the Potter will take lump of clay and make it beautiful.
