His mother said to the servants, “Whatever He says to you, do it”
March 20, 2020
We must obey whether we can understand or not. When Jesus was at the wedding in Cana, the servants had no way of knowing what Jesus was going to do. It must have seemed silly to be filling pots with water. But Jesus’ mother gave them some very wise advice we would do well to heed: “Whatever He says to you, do it.”
It wasn’t a matter of whether they understood it or not, just that He told them to do it. The same Jesus who turned water into wine can transform your home, can transform your life, can transform your family, can transform your future. That same Jesus is still in the miracle-working business. His business is the business of transformation.
Someone has well said that nature forms us, sin deforms us, the penitentiary reforms us, education informs us, the world conforms us, but only Jesus transforms us.
Many times your mind is going to say, “Well, that’s old-fashioned,” or “That doesn’t make sense.” Never come to the Bible that way. Never parade the Bible across the judgment bar of your reason. Whatever He says to you, do it.
