Earthen vessel I was made
I spoke on the all-inclusive Christ during the last seven days of 1962. The next day, January 1 of 1963, I was brought by a brother to Whittier to share with a group of seeking ones there. My burden was to share the truth and experience of transformation. Today I am still speaking on transformation. Stanza 6 of Hymns, #548 says: 'Transformation is my need, / To be broken more indeed, / That the clay may change in form, / To the treasure to conform.' We were made as an earthen vessel, but this vessel should be transformed in its appearance. Transformation is not a kind of outward reformation or correction. Transformation is a metabolic change in the substantial form.
Amen Lord, transformation is my need.
Praise the Lord!! , we are earthen vessels, with a precious treasure.
Christ is our treasure, who is transforming us day by day into his image
Him expressing from within,
Making Him to others seen,
I transparent have to be
That He may be shown thru me.

Amen, dear Lord, mingling with us ALL the way.
What a wonderful Life - In His Image we were made,
fit that Christ would all pervade... Hallelujah!
Gain what You need in us Lord, You will gain your expression fully!
Amen! What a treasure! Yes, we are Your containers, fill us full of Your precious Self!
Moving in us day by day,
Mingling with us all the way,
All our steps He regulates,
Every part He saturates!
He is moving, mingling, regulating, and saturating us!

1 Earthen vessel I was made,
Christ in me the treasure laid;
His container I must be,
As the content He in me.

What a marvelous truth that we have Christ as the treasure within us! He is sustaining us with His power and He is our reality. Without Him there is just vanity. Then the song shows us our destiny, to be conformed to the image of Christ.

It was so feeding to me to read it and to sing it. Amen. my need is to be broken more indeed!
