Filling The Waterpots
His mother said to the servants, "Whatever He says to you, do it." John 2:5 (NKJ)
In John 2:1-11 (NKJ) Jesus, His mother, and his disciples were all attending a wedding in Cana. At one point during the celebrations they ran out of wine and Mary, like any other mother, looked to her son to help with the situation. In verse five we see what she spoke to the servants before he did just that. "Whatever He says to you, do it." Jesus simply looks to the six waterpots nearby and said to the servants, "Fill the waterpots with water." They did! Then He said, "Draw some out now, and take it to the master of the feast." They did! It was no longer water but according to the master of the feast, it was 'the good wine' and there was nothing inferior about it!
John ends with this statement, 'This beginning of signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory; and His disciples believed in Him.' Jesus turned water into wine! John used the term,'this beginning of signs' to describe this miraculous event. Signs have a purpose. In this case they manifested His glory and caused His disciples to believe! Signs point us in the right direction!
'This beginning sign' happened because His mother spoke these words, "Whatever He says, do it." and because the servants, who had no choice, obeyed! Servants don't choose what orders they obey. If we, His servants, want to see His glory manifested in our lives and see those around us believe, then we need to listen and whatever He says, do it! Even if it means filling the waterpots!
