2 Timothy 2:21 (NIV) ~ Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.

To be holy and made for special purposes where you are useful to Master, prepared to do any good work, is the exact place God wants you to be; to be a vessel fit for the Master’s use, filled with the fire and power of the Holy Spirit. 

The Greek word for instrument is skeuos meaning jar, vessel, possession and a general term that can refer to a human being. This word is highlighted in the verse of Scripture from Acts 9:15 (NIV), when God spoke to Ananias about Saul and said, “Go! This man is my chosen instrument to carry my name before the Gentiles and their kings and before the people of Israel.”

However, unlike an instrument that once a musician or workman is finished with it, he lays it down, you are never laid down by God, or put to one side, because you are a son. You are always in the hand of the Master, ready to do any good work which He calls upon you to do.

Note, if you will, what kind of instrument God makes you to be: you are made to for special purposes for the Master, not just any purpose, but for a special one, to carry His message and do good works in His name. 

My friend, it becomes a conscious decision on your part to serve the Living God, to be holy and follow hard after Him, to surrender all to Jesus and say, “Here I am, LORD, use me.” God has a special purpose for your life, not just an average one, but a special one that only you can accomplish. So, cleanse yourself from all that hinders you from following Jesus with everything that is within you, so you may be, as out text for today says in 2 Timothy 2:21 (NIV), “Those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.” 

God bless you my friend, Matthew.
