How You Can be Shaped Into Christ’s Likeness
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek—Romans 1:16.
The art of making pottery has remained largely unchanged for thousands of years. Even today, if you visit the Middle East, you’ll find potters molding clay who come from families that have been potters as far back as they can trace. And that art has been handed down generation to generation–the same skill practiced the same way.
When pottery is made, a potter will take a lifeless lump of clay, knead it, and squeeze it until it’s soft and pliable. And when the clay is just right, the potter takes the clay and throws it on the spinning wheel he operates with a foot pedal.
As the clay is placed on that wheel, the potter’s hands begin to press and push the moldable clay into a shaped container. And that clay that was once an ugly lump becomes a beautiful piece of pottery. It took shaping and molding, but the potter transformed what was ugly into something beautiful.
What an amazing picture the Scripture paints here of us being shaped by the hands of God, our Potter, who shapes us into a greater likeness of His Son. It might be a tough process, but trust in the Potter that His hands are skilled and will shape you exactly how He wants you!
