Scripture: John (NIV) 2:5 His (Jesus) mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he (Jesus) tells you.”
John 2:7 Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water.”
John 2:8 Then he told them, “Now draw some out and take to the master of the banquet.”
John 2:10 (the response of the master of the banquet) “…you have saved the best till now!”
Observation: Someone had miss-planned; the wine ran out before the wedding celebration was over. Mary, Jesus mother, must have been a relative because she felt responsible to do something. She did not ask about a place to buy wine and then send someone to buy more wine; she sent the servants to Jesus. Verse five gives her instructions. Not only were Mary’s instructions simple and easy to follow, Jesus instructions in verses 7 and 8 were also simple and easy to follow.
Application: Often the most profound things are the most simple. I have found Jesus instructions to be easy to understand. I may not always know how He will take care of His part, but I always understand my part. His instructions are always simple. His instructions are never beyond my ability to do.
Prayer: Lord, it is simple—I am to just do whatever you tell me. May you find me a faithful servant. Amen
Making friends for time and eternity!
