Pastor Melissa Scott continues her teaching on The Potter’s House.

Every single person has something wrong with them and maybe not an outward thing that you can see. But I have plenty wrong with me. You’ve got plenty wrong with you. That’s the concept of the potter’s house and if God will empower you, you can be victorious over anything that is ruling the flesh because God empowers us to. It doesn’t mean that you’re going to have the victory over everything but you can be like Paul and say, “This, I can get victory over.”  Yes. All things. And I can say, “all things are lawful, not all things are expedient.”

And that brings me to the person. The potter. The God that we serve doesn’t look like the creation of my mind. If we could let modern day religion paint the picture of the potter, we’d be sitting in the potter’s chair while we’d be doing the work, working on the potter. That’s the attitude instead of saying perfect submission, “Have your way, Lord. I’m just a lousy, rotten piece of clay anyway. You do with me what you will and I know when I come through this I’m going to be something good because you made me good, not because I brought anything to the table.”
