Make Me Over

posted Oct 9, 2013, 5:40 AM by Beautiful Zion

We live in a society where we are under constant pressure to look a certain way in order to achieve.  There was a time when we only heard of women getting makeovers, now everyone is being made over and paying thousands of dollars to accomplish this task.  It does not matter how many facelifts, hairstyles or cuts, pedicures and manicures, or time spent in the gym, unless there has been an inward change, we remain the same ungrateful, unthankful, and sinful person.

Jeremiah was called to be a prophet at a young age, and now he finds himself at the potter’s house not to bring a word but to receive a word.  Israel had turned their backs on God; He wanted them to know they were just like clay and could be made over again.  “He was making something at the wheel, and the vessel he made of clay was married”, marred means ruined.  We are ruined because of sin. We have contributed by our over indulgence of a worldly lifestyle. Many have managed to come to Jesus from all walks of life: brokenhearted, substance addictions, low–self esteem, no love, no hope, and a whole laundry list of other issues.  But the greatest thing is that we made it to Jesus and now we can go through Him in order to get to the Father.  In the potter’s house there is healing, deliverance, comfort, joy, and salvation. On the potter’s wheel is where God can make and mold us into what He would have us to be, and then we will be useful for the Master. 

If you do not know Jesus as Lord and Savior, you need a makeover.  Others may need some work done because there is nothing wrong with a touch up.  No appointment required walk-ins are welcome!  If you want to be an imitator of Christ you have to be made over.  There is plenty of room on the potter’s wheel!
