From 2 Timothy 2:20-21, we can gather five observations:

  1. The vessels are there in order that they may be used.
  2. The vessels are really needed by the Master.
  3. The vessels are for different purposes.
  4. The vessels that God uses must be available.
  5. The vessels that God uses must be clean.

Galatians 5:16-25

Acts of the flesh - Sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. These make a vessel of dishonor.

Fruit of the Spirit - Love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. These make a vessel of honor.

If you live by the Spirit you will be a vessel of honor.
