A dear friend gave us a copy of a CD by Jim Brady titled “Jim Brady Singing The Hits”. I love it. There are so many good songs on this CD. Jim does a wonderful job singing them and really giving them life for the listener. One of my favorites is “Until Then” and Jim does a slam dunk job on that.
The song that has really hit home for me is the song “He Didn’t Throw The Clay Away”. As I listened while driving down the road I really began to hear the words and the truth of the song. We have probably heard that He is the Potter and we are the clay.
God has a plan for our lives. He knows the end from the beginning. He also has an expectation for us. He expects us to be saved. He expects us to put our faith and trust in Him. This really came home for me when I read Jeremiah 18:4, “And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.”
Notice it was the clay that was marred. The clay was in the hand of the potter. The potter did not have any flaws. He being perfect, could have given up on me and you immediately; but, He didn’t. I love the last line of the verse as it says, “… so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.” He has the power to make us what we were intended to be prior to the fall of the first Adam. The second Adam came to redeem fallen man from sin and make him a new creation. “Thank God He Didn’t Throw The Clay Away”!
So, how are you doing?
