John 2:5 Do Whatever He Says

“His mother said to the servants, Do whatever he tells you.” John 1:5

Jesus, the disciples and Mary (His mother) were at a wedding. While there the servants had run out of wine for the guests to drink. Mary mentions this to Jesus. At this point Jesus does not do anything about it. She then turns to the servants and tells them to do whatever He tells them to do.

Later Jesus has them fill the jars with water and serve the water. That water was turned into wine. This was one of the first public miracles that Jesus had done.

The Bible does not show that Jesus had ever done any miracles as a child or even later for His mother prior to this event. What is shown is that Mary had complete faith in Jesus. She knew that whatever He said would work. She knew that He had a level of control that no one else ever had.

What Jesus had to them do was crazy. If that water had not changed, they would have been out of a job and disgraced. It would have been unthinkable of serving the head people of a wedding water, yet that is what it appeared they were doing. Mary and those servants had to trust that Jesus knew what He was doing.

Although nearly 2,000 years have passed, the words are still the same. You and I are to do whatever Jesus says. He does not always ask you to do things that sound crazy, but He does ask you to do things. Regardless of how it sounds you are to do what He says.

Who knows? Maybe what you do will be recorded down in history as a great miracle, like those servants that served water that turned into wine.

How willing are you to follow Jesus? Many will follow Him in words, but not in actions. Are you willing to take the action He wants you to take? Are will you let fear stand in your way?

Step out and trust Jesus. He will not fail you. Do whatever He says, it will be worth it in the end.

I pray that you hear what God is telling you what to do; that you will trust the words of Jesus; that you will do what God asks you to do; and that God will use you to build His kingdom.
