Click here for the NET Bible rendering of today’s passage.

I’m a pot, a vessel. The Greek word is skyoo’-os. Various meanings: jar, property, object, utensil, tackle (as in ropes), body.

There are two kinds of vessels:

1. vessels of wrath, requiring great patience on God’s part, prepared for ultimate destruction to show God’s power.
2. vessels of mercy, called by God and prepared beforehand, showing the wealth of God’s glory.

Though I deserve to be in the first category, I’m glad God hand-picked me, chosing me to belong to the second category!

Casting Crowns – Who Am I Lyrics

Who am I?
That the Lord of all the earth,
Would care to know my name,
Would care to feel my hurt.
Who am I?
That the bright and morning star,
Would choose to light the way,
For my ever wondering heart.

Not because of who I am.
But because of what you’ve done.
Not because of what I’ve done.
But because of who you are.

Thank You, Lord for rescuing me!

  1. Great summary statements on objects of wrath and objects of mercy. It is very humbling to think God chose me to be an object of mercy! I will be forever grateful.

    Thanks for the lyrics, Mark. How easily I forget that it’s not about me, but about Him. He is in control and He loves me. WOW!

  3. A note in my NIV study Bible makes the point that the purpose of God’s patience is to bring us to repentance ( Romans 2:4).I am glad that He gave me and all Christians the opportunity to repent and come to know the blessing of being an object of His mercy!
