...The Lord said unto him, Go thy way for he is a chosen vessel unto Me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel.
The setting for today's text is Paul conversion while on his mission of persecuting the Christians. God had already chosen Paul to be His vessel to carry the gospel message to the world. This speaks to God having the final say on our lives to fulfill His purpose of spreading the gospel message of Christ.
Paul being a chosen vessel of God, he accomplished great things in the name of the Lord; so will you and I.
Being the elect called by God, He has a mission and a purpose for all of our lives and as we willingly submit to the call God is pleased and is with you every step of the way through His Spirit. Remember Paul and Silas while in prison and how God delivered them and in the process the jailer and his household were saved. There are other instances where God's presence is with His chosen vessels. He will do the same for you and me today; because He never changes.
It is noteworthy to say, being a chosen vessel of God we may have to suffer sometimes, but fear not God is with us. Christ suffered much for our sake; why not suffer for His sake in carrying the salvation message to lost souls of the world.
Christ is the message and believers are the chosen vessels chosen to carry that message.
