Be a Vessel for Those in Need
Last Update: Jul 18, 2018
WHAT IS A VESSEL? THERE ARE SEVERAL MEANINGS.
The common definition of the word vessel is--a container to hold liquid. It is a solid tool that carries its substance.
A vessel is also a boat or ship, such as a fishing vessel, used to carry people and protect them from the elements. A vessel protects during stormy weather.
IN REGARD TO ANATOMY.
In regard to anatomy, a vessel is a duct or canal holding or carrying blood and fluid through the body. (a blood vessel)
IN REFERENCE TO BOTANY.
In reference to botany, a vessel is the vasular system of a plant that serves to transport and carry water, minerals and nutrients to and from the leaves and roots.
IN RELATION TO HUMANS.
We are also vessels---used to embody and be an expression of guidance and help to others, most importantly during the storms of life. In a world that is surrounded with chaos and conflict, we should be vessels to assist those who need a helping hand---a guiding light on a mission.
- Doing this often comes from an idea, a feeling or a sudden surge of kindness.
Looking back on all the definitions of this impactful word, we see that it centers around certain actions:
- to hold
- to carry
- to transport
- to protect
- to serve
All these things surround the word vessel.
HOW DOES BEING A VESSEL ASSOCIATE TO OUR BUSINESS?
In relation to our businesses, we can also be vessels to provide the needs that people are so desperately searching for. We can allow solutions to challenges, problems, needs or wants.
Our websites should include other people's passions, as well as our own! Content should be written with heart and sensability. When someone lands on your page, make them feel welcome and provide a "shiny penny" that will draw their attention in a concerned way. Send them to CTA (call to action) pages, which will allow them to make a bold decision in their best interest.
Be a vessel to your audience. Be someone that will have a lasting impression. Be kind and sincere...
BE A VESSEL.

A vessel can also be a human being who's might be used by a spirit being to do, either good or bad.
For instense, I'm a vessel as a Pastor that the Lord God uses to bless other people's lives. I've lost count of people God has supernaturally healed of HIV, CANCER, TUMORS, DEMONIC POSSESSIONS, AND MANY MORE.
That you for such an interesting subject Erin.
God bless you!
Hi Boaz! Yes, being a vessel as you spoke of was my main intention for this post. But, I couldn't actually say that because of the rules. I, too, am a Minister, and a vessel to do good in the world according to His command. Your healing ministry is amazing! Thanks for your wonderful reply!
