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.

Daily D – Psalm 57:2

Psalm 57:2 ”I call to God Most High, to God who fulfills his purpose for me.“

Daily D – Psalm 56:3

Psalm 56:3 When I am afraid, I will trust in you.

Daily D – Deuteronomy 8:12-18

Deuteronomy 8:12-18 When you eat and are full, and build beautiful houses to live in, and your herds and flocks grow large, and your silver and gold multiply, and everything else you have increases, be careful that your heart doesn’t become proud and you forget the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the place of slavery. He led you through the great and terrible wilderness with its poisonous snakes and scorpions, a thirsty land where there was no water. He brought water out of the flint rock for you. He fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your ancestors had not known, in order to humble and test you, so that in the end he might cause you to prosper. You may say to yourself, ‘My power and my own ability have gained this wealth for me,’ but remember that the Lord your God gives you the power to gain wealth, in order to confirm his covenant he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.

Daily D – Deuteronomy 6:4-9

Deuteronomy 6:4-9 “Listen, Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be a symbol on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your city gates.“

Daily D – Deuteronomy 1:2-3

Deuteronomy 1:2, 3 It is an eleven-day journey from Horeb to Kadesh-barnea by way of Mount Seir. In the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first of the month, Moses told the Israelites everything the Lord had commanded him to say to them.
