Vessels of Honour

The Bulletin Board is for gratitude for Christian Science and the Church, as well as timely excerpts from the Bible, the works of Mrs. Eddy, and the early workers that help and encourage. We are very grateful for all posts that conform to these guidelines, but will edit or remove anything that the Practitioners feel is not in complete accord with pure Christian Science or in any way disrespectful of it.

We also ask that you keep your postings as concise as possible. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    2 Timothy 2: 20-21
    But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.
    If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.

    These citations stood out to me this morning. It seems it’s a question we should ask ourselves daily: Am I a vessel unto honour? Am I useful to the Master (to God)?

    From Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible:

    he shall be a vessel unto honour; he will be made manifest, and appear to be a vessel chosen to honour; and will be an honourable member of the church here, and will be honoured by Christ hereafter:

    sanctified: he will appear to be one that is set apart by God the Father … and who is sanctified internally by the Spirit of God; for external holiness springs from internal holiness, and is, an evidence of it:

    and meet for the master’s use: the use and service of Christ, who is the master of the house; either for the ministry of the word, the administration of ordinances, or for some service or another, which he calls him to, and employs him in.
