• Jeremiah 18:1-6: From reading this passage of scripture, we have an object lesson here; The LORD asks a question in verse six.
  • Just as Jeremiah went to the potter's house, let's pretend to be looking in the potter's window and compare our lives to the dirty clay and the potter being GOD:

  • Think of what Jesus Christ went through for you because He loves you first:
  • GOD won't override our will ... but He could. He wants us to do His will because He loves us.

  • Whereas parents eventually have to force children to do their chores, GOD is extraordinarily patient with you and will not force you to do anything.

  • If you're dirty clay stuck in the mud and can't get out, GOD must remove you and take you to His (the Potter's) house.

  • Jeremiah 18:6: So getting back to the original question: when will you come back into GOD's will? GOD will not smash you and trash you ... he'll retain and re-mold you.
