Conclusion of God Is The Potter – We Are The Clay

Watching Pat give a real live demonstration on how pottery is actually made leaves you with a very good visual image in your mind’s eye on the analogy of the Potter and the clay.

Watching Pat’s hands literally take a hard, rigid, and shapeless piece of clay, and then turn it into a beautiful piece of pottery, perfectly lines up with what God wants to do with each one of us in this life.

Due to the fallen, sinful, and corrupt state that we have all been born into this world with, only God can mold, shape, and transform us into beautiful vessels of honor that will be fit for His use. Sanctification, when truly done by the Lord, is the highest state we should all be striving for in our own personal relationship with the Lord.

The Holy Spirit is already on the inside of us ready, waiting, and willing to do this type of inner work on us.

In the Sanctification Section of our site, we have plenty of good articles giving you more information on what true sanctification in the Lord is all about and how to get this kind of process going with the Lord.

I will end this article by bullet pointing all of the above main pieces of revelation on the Potter and the clay so you can see how powerful and beautiful this analogy really is:

  • God Needs the Word in Us Before He Can Start the Sanctification Process
  • Sanctification is a Slow, Steady, and Progressive Process
  • God’s Hand Will Personally Mold, Shape, and Transform You
  • Let God Develop You to Your Fullest Potential in This Life
  • God Knows Exactly What He Wants to Do With Your Life
  • Do Not Stretch Beyond the Boundary Lines that God Has Set Up For Your Life
  • God’s Eyes and Attention Are Always on You
  • God Will Always Be Doing Major Pruning in Your Life
  • Let God Mold You Into the Specific Person He Wants You to Become

Once again, God the Father is giving all of us an incredible piece of revelation in His Word on this analogy of Him being the Potter and we being His clay. Let us know your thoughts below on the Potter and the Clay article.

    I love the analogy of the Potter and the Clay but you left one important point out. The vessel has to go through the fire to strengthen it otherwise if you were to try and use it or put water in it it would fall apart. It would be no good for anything. So God puts us through the fire to test our faith and to strengthen us. We become stronger because of the fire.

    This truly blessed me and provides such clarity. It gave me so much to think about. I was trying to develop a talk to Christian women about being shaped. I used some of your materials (not getting paid) but certainly gave you credit.
