DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

Dieter F. Uchtdorf - April 2016 LDS General Conference  #lds #ldsconf #quotes:

(KJV.)  EPHESIANS 4:17-19


(17)  This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind.
(18)  Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:
(19)  Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.

THE POTTER'S HOUSE


Brethren, as saved, sanctified, set aside community of special people for purposes of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior;  being special, let us not join multitudes, walk in ways detrimental to our faith in the righteousness of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior:  before, we accepted Jesus Christ into our hearts as Lord and Savior, we were sinners, roaming around within the world of darkness, enjoyed ourselves, doing whatever we thought was rightful to do during those darker moments; however, after we were saved, receive the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit into our innermost spirits, our past sinful behaviors were purged away from our innermost spirits;  old self-structures are torn down spiritually, destroyed entirely by the Holy Spirit; the regeneration process begins, this process is done through brokenness of spirits, whereby our old sinful selves were taken away, momentarily, reprocesses into newer vessels with godly attributes, and exemplify ourselves in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

However, when the Holy Spirit destroys our old selves, he does not leave us in destructive states; our Father encloses broken soils of our spirits into his soul manufacturing warehouse, turns earthen body soils over, mixes insides, outsides, fertilize with spiritual godly attributes, more dusty earthly materials, restructuring processes begins:  though we are still alive, in good health, walking around like everybody else in this world, spiritually, we are broken vessels in the Potter's house;  the world may not perceive our brokenness physically, people who have experienced this types of processes, can testify of experiences, that spiritual brokenness is a devasting experience; broken vessels walk physically among humanity, whereas spiritually, they are in furnaces of our Father, in the Potter's house, experiencing regeneration, rebuilding, restructuring, renewing of lives; when believers are in regeneration incubators, though desires of their old selves are purged away, if care is not taken, to focus on praying and reading of his words, the desires of the old selves, which we observe, feel, experience many times, may tempt our souls, to backslide from the Potter's hands into ungodliness of our old selves, which was taken away by the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit;  however, this types of backward attitudes, cannot hinder the master Potter from continuing, finishing the process of regenerations;  many times, he will set the clay aside, delay the process, teach broken vessels few more lessons, to know where they are, what is going on, his will in their lives; go back to the broken vessels earthen nutrients, parked on shelves, bring them back on wheels, into the furnace, continue finish regeneration processes.

Souls that are in the warehouse of our Father, going through regeneration, physically feels heating pressures of what they experience spiritually going through the process;  many times. furnaces are turned up or down depending upon stages of processes,  some regeneration could take longer time to accomplish than others depend on what the master Potter has in mind to accomplish in vessels; some vessels are made of gold, silver, others of wood and dust of the earth, some to honor, others to dishonor; refer to 2 Timothy 2:20;  judgements on what to do with souls in spinning wheels are in the Potter's prerogatives;  the clays do not have any input on what the Potter does with their souls, the only part they play, is to surrender themselves completely to the Potter, follow his instructions, obey his voice while still in his hands, until his masterpiece is completed at appointed times, placed on exhibition for humanity observation, glorification of mighty works of the Porter;  therefore, at certain points of our lives, many believers will experience regenerations, inferentially, as vessels of the Potter's house, still in the mighty hands of the master builder, our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior:  regardless of where we are present times, let us trust the master's will, that he knows exactly what he is doing in our lives, have patience, pray fervently, wait upon him to finish his works, that we may be completely refurbished, restructured, blemish-free, flawless, perfectly done, equip for good works in this world of darkness for his glorification forevermore.

CONCLUSION: 


Dearly beloved,  what Apostle Paul is saying to believers in the above text is, after we have gone through the regeneration process successfully; to talk about our experiences, share information, knowledge about our faith, how we were able to overcome sufferings through the process, give our Father all the glory, through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior;  refrain ourselves from backsliding into old selves, take authorities over our thought processes, not to think worldly, lustful thoughts, desires of fleshly attributes and mindsets, to participate again in worthless deeds of our old selves which Jesus Christ purged away through the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit:  but rather, be Christlike, with godly mindsets, focus on spiritual matters, appreciate newer selves, whether gold, silver, wooden or earthen vessels, regenerations are richly done within the perimeters of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; there is nothing is done in vain, or not done perfectly in his perspective; therefore, if we are in the Potters house at present times, let us trust his hands that we will come out perfectly, as shining examples of Jesus Christ, to do his will forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!


QUOTES OF THE DAY:


(KJV.)  Galatians 4:8-9  Howbeit then,  when ye knew not God, ye did service unto them which by nature are no gods.  But now, after that, ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage?
