Vessels for Honorable Use View video
2 Timothy 2:20 - 2:26
20. In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for special purposes and some for common use.
21. Those who cleanses themselves from the latter will be an instrument for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.
22. Flee the evil desires of youth, and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
23. Don't have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels.
24. And the Lord's servant must not quarrel; instead, he must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful.
25. Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth,
26. and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.
Reflection
Double Life (2:20–26)
Gospel ministry goes hand in hand with godly character. We cannot hope to be effective in leading others to become more like Christ without demonstrating holiness and purity in our public and private lives. While this principle was obvious to Paul and the apostles, who were steeped in Old Testament tradition and took its laws very seriously, it has unfortunately fallen on deaf ears in our day, where it has become common to hear of celebrity preachers and acclaimed ministry leaders having to step down on account of habitual sin. Paul exhorts believers to “cleanse themselves” in order to be approved for God’s work. Embracing the gospel does not absolve us of our responsibility to strive diligently to be pure and blameless before the church and the world. There is much that can and should be done to avoid the shame and heartache that comes from living a double life.
Application
- In what areas do you struggle to remain pure and blameless? What practical steps can you take to avoid falling into sin?
A Letter to God
Intercede Together

The World
In India, thousands of pastors, evangelists, gospel workers, and bishops have died from Covid-19. This includes a seminary president, professors, missionaries, pastors, and their spouses. Such deaths are causing a leadership vacuum in the church, considering the time and effort it takes to equip new leaders. Pray that God will comfort and help the believers in India and that the church will continue to be salt and light amid this situation.

The Unreached
Formerly desert nomads, the Saharawi now live in the disputed region of Western Sahara, Morocco, in several Algerian refugee camps, and in the Canary Islands. Though they are Muslim, they retain some of their traditional beliefs, making them more open to different religions than other branches of Islam. Many of them live in areas of political turmoil where life is dangerous and uncertain. Pray for the Saharawi to find homes for their families and peace in Christ.
