Bible Study:Christian Women & Pastors Wives, I am "Meet" for The Master's Use, Part 2
2 Timothy 2:21 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."
Another story from Illustrations, page 88, copyright 1915: "UNTIL RELIEVED. During the siege of the fortress of Gibraltar the governor, while making a tour of inspection, came to a sentinel who stood stock-still, neither holding his musket nor presenting arms. The governor stopped and demanded to know why he did not salute him.
“Because,” was the reply, “within the last ﬁve minutes two ﬁngers of my right hand have been shot off and I can not hold my musket.”
“Then, why do you not go and have it bound up?”
“Because,” came the brave reply, “in Germany a man is forbidden to leave his post until replaced by another.”
The ofﬁcer immediately dismounted to relieve the faithful sentinel, that his wounds might be dressed."
Prayer - Oh, God, that I might be so "meet" for You, only because of the law of love You want me to operate in!
Be blessed in The Name above every name, Jesus! I know I am!
