Daily D – John 2:5

by | Aug 30, 2021 | Daily D | 0 comments

“Do whatever he tells you,” his mother told the servants.
JOHN 2:5 (CSB)

—————————————————————————

Jesus always knew the right thing to do. This gave Mary, his mother, confidence to say what she did in this situation that otherwise would have gone from bad to worse to completely humiliating. 

This is a good reminder. When we do not know what to do next, when we do not know what to do in an urgent moment, we can always ask Jesus. 

Jesus always knows the right thing to do.

Jesus will always lead us to do the right thing. He never leads falsely. He never leads us astray. He provides both direction and strength. Psalm 23:1 tells us that “The LORD is my shepherd; I have what I need.” Verse 3 says, “He renews my life; he leads me along the right paths for his name’s sake.”

Jesus does all things well. On this occasion, the water he turned into wine was the best of the entire celebration (see verse 10). Of course it was. Genesis 1:12 says, “The earth produced vegetation: seed-bearing plants according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.” Our Father in heaven is the giver of all good things. All of those good things were created through Jesus, “and apart from him not one thing was created that has been created,” (John 1:3). 

It took turning water into wine for some people to begin to appreciate Jesus for who he is. Mary was way ahead of them. We are all still catching up to her. 

Jesus always knew the right thing to do.

Jesus always knows the right thing to do.

It is always a good time to turn to Jesus when we do not know what to do. He who created all things, he who takes what is before him and blesses and multiplies it making it better than it ever could have been otherwise, is still working his wonders for those who are beginning to see him for who he is. 

To you, who is Jesus? John’s Gospel shows us Jesus in all of his goodness, all of his glory. Every paragraph and page is a savory delight. Walk with Jesus through these pages. Listen for his voice. Observe his behavior. Learn just how good it is to “do whatever he tells you.”

 

—————————————————————————

I will do whatever Jesus tells me.

—————————————————————————

Our Father, thank you for these words of truth and life. Thank you for the grace they communicate. Thank you for the revelation they provide. Help us to seek Jesus for who he is. Teach us to do whatever he says in eager anticipation of the best that life can be. Amen.

And I will establish the throne of his kingdom over Israel forever.’ “Now, my son, the Lord be with you, and may you have success and build the house of the Lord your God, as he said you would. May the Lord give you discretion and understanding when he puts you in command over Israel, so that you may keep the law of the Lord your God.
