In 2024, Do as He Instructs: Gospel Today Devotional - 2nd January, 2024

The Scripture in the second chapter of John gives an account of the beginning of miracles of Jesus in Cana of Galilee.

In 2024, Do as He Instructs: Gospel Today Devotional - 2nd January, 2024

According to the record, the wine was finished and there was no wine available. Mary the mother of Jesus I believe with the mind that her Son could make something happen came to tell him about the situation of things.

Surprisingly, Jesus didn't say a yes. In fact his answer didn't indicate he was going to make something happen. Despite this, his mother said something to the servants that every believer should learn from and must live by in this new year. It is found in this verse of Scripture,

"His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it" ( John 2:5).

Leaving without a definite answer from her Son, she still told the servants to do as he would tell them to. Perhaps she thought; I know he would still do something about it, whatever he says to  you; do not hesitate to do it.

And of course, Jesus did. He told them to fill the water pots and to draw out from it. That was the miracle ( their obedience to his instructions), and water became wine. It pays to do what he says, right?

Just as Jesus turned water into wine at the wedding ceremony, he still today turns tears into joy, mourning into rejoicing, and obstacles into miracles. 

But you see, you have to on your part do what he says, just as the mother of Jesus commanded the servants, and they did obey.

If he says to stop crying, you do. If he says to start rejoicing or start singing, you do. If he says not to worry or to fear, you do. Why is this? Because your miracle is in your response to his instructions. In 2022, do what he tells you to do. The Lord help us in Jesus' name. Amen.

Thought for the Day

Your miracle lies in your response to the Lord's instructions. In this year, do what he tells you to do.
