Treasures in earthen Vessels



Scripture; Ephesians 4: 8. Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.

Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! Man is the most important entity amongst God’s creation because of the treasure God deposited in man. Previously, we looked at some of these treasures. Today, we shall be looking at how to tap into this wonderful treasures that is inherent in man.

From our anchor scripture, we discover that when Jesus died and rose again, He gave gifts to men!

What exactly were these gifts that Jesus gave to men? A close look at this passage in another translation will give us a better understanding;;

Ephesians 4:11 (NLT) Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers.

The scripture also reveals to us the essence of such gifts in (Eph.4: 13&14) that we might be mature into the fullness of Christ. Therefore, the gifts God gave to men are gifts of men! Hence to receive the treasures in any man, that man must be received as a gift sent by God. Men are gifts of God that could be sent.

The day you understand that men sent into your life are gifts, it is then you will start enjoying the treasure they carry. In many places, they don’t celebrate the gift of God until the demise of that individual. After the death of a man, you will see several poems and songs composed to eulogize the late person!

Beloved, receive that man sent into your life per time as a gift, then what the man has to offer will benefit your life. Consider that your pastor as a gift sent to you from God, that is the only way to receive his ministry.


Consider the man that is dishing out this work to you on daily basis as a gift from God to you that is how to receive of my ministry. There are those who are waiting for God to send help, when the help arrives they reject it and keep on disturbing heaven!

That was the story of the Israelites, they were busy waiting for the Messiah, but when the Messiah finally showed up, they rejected Him because He didn’t have the biceps and masculine posture befitting their idea of a supposed Messiah.

The rejection was so strong that Jesus wept:

Luke 19: 41. And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it.

Beloved, the kind of emotional trauma that goes with being rejected is a great one! This is why you should not treat anyone with rejection. Don’t make that person around you feel as if he is not needed.

Rather, let everyone that come around you feel better than when they leave you. People shouldn’t meet you and leave feeling rejected. The world is full of so many people battling with rejection, don’t increase the tally by the way you are treating the one sent to you.

Please understand that it is not only pastors, apostles, prophets and evangelists that are sent! There are other men who are not into pulpilt ministry, yet they are sent by God! How do I mean?

Your spouse is the first person sent into your life. This explains why how you treat your spouse could close your door or keep it open! That your hired servant could be sent by God. That explains why when a man sent by God enters into your organization, everything turns around on a positive note.

In the same vein, Satan could send someone into your life in form of a spouse or friend. He could as well send men into your organization/company and everything will begin to nosedive on a negative trend. It therefore calls for a believer to be careful in the choice of life partner or hiring any one. Don’t take things for granted or else you will be grounded.


Probably you are here today feeling rejected because the one you were sent to did not accept you! Oh you felt reduced because the most important person in your life rejected you! I have a good news for you, the days of rejection are over! The Lord has seen how rejected you are and He is set to turn the story around.

Remember this: Heaven is real and hell is real. The decision of where to spend eternity is best made now. Give Jesus a space in your life today.

Prayer points:

– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Father help me to discern and receive the gift of men sent into my life in the name of Jesus.

Prophetic Declaration

– I prophesy, that man that you need for a change of story is coming your way this season in the name of Jesus.
– For everyone that is feeling rejected because of the way you were treated by the people you were sent to, your time of remembrance has come because heaven has opened your book of remembrance.
