2 Timothy 2:20-21, 1 Peter 1:13-16

God’s forming leads to God’s firming. His intention in shaping us is to form a vessel that’s meet (or fitting) for His use today. The danger is that at the intersection of faith and the culture in which we minister is a slippery slope of compromise that has killed off the power in some churches today. God means to mould us into usable vessels and any forming that inhibits that is never God’s will.
