Elite? Surely not!

by Trent - originally posted September 2005

I have a warehouse full of bags (for the sake of discussion.) Some are sent out to be filled with scrap metal. Others are sent to be used by brink's security deposit trucks to haul money. One might point to the sack holding trash and say that it is not worth anything. Someone might point to a sack of cash and say that is a fortune. But it is the same sack.

Thus it is written that it is not what goes into a man's mouth that defiles him, but what comes out of the mouth. No soul is inherently noble, nor inherently defiled ... for all are created in the image of God.

Let us grateful to be filled with treasure, so that we may be given the noble task of the good works prepared in advance that we should walk in by the Lord, among many necessary tasks for which a soul may be put to use.

Lets not forget that it the objects of God's wrath are useful in glorifying "what God is NOT like" as well the ransomed are useful in glorifying what God IS like by the Spirit.

Are we elite? That term would imply inherent nobility, that we do not have.

2 Corinthians 3
4 Such confidence we have through Christ toward God.
5 Not that we are adequate in ourselves to consider anything as coming from ourselves, but our adequacy is from God,
6 who also made us adequate as servants of a new covenant,
