BIBLE IN ONE YEAR Gen 41, Mark 11, Job 7, Romans 11
John 2:3 and when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, they have no wine.
Bible studies: John 2:1-11
After the wine was exhausted, Mary approached Jesus to inform Him of
the situation of things. After a brief chat with Jesus, she gave an
instruction to the disciples of Jesus and left. Today we will be looking
at the instruction she gave as it was pivotal to the miracle that
turned water to wine. She said “whatever He says to you, do it”. Let us
look at the word ‘whatever’ closely. Whatever He says simply means
anything He says. In other words she was telling them to carry out any
instruction from Jesus, whether it is convenient or not, whether it
appeals to common sense or not, whether it is logical or not, whether it
is demanding or not, whether it will make them look stupid or not,
whether it will cause them to lose friends or not but whatever
instruction from Jesus, they should carry it out. There is no point
running to Jesus if you are unwilling to carry out the instruction He
will give. Isaiah 1:19 says if you are willing and obedient, you shall
eat the good of the land. The good of the land is available for all but
only the obedient will eat of it.
After she left, Jesus instructed them to fill the water pots with
water and they did. He then asked them to draw out some and give it to
the master of the feast. They did as they were told and there was a
miracle.There is a big lesson to learn here. The first instruction Jesus
gave was they should fill the water pots with water. Secondly He told
them to draw out of the water pots and give it to the master of the
feast. The obedience to the first instruction brought the organizers of
the party a step to closer to the miracle that turned water to wine. If
they had disobeyed Jesus and not fill the water pots with water, there
would not be anything to draw from when Jesus told them to draw from the
water pots and give to the master of feast. Disobedience to the
instruction of Jesus would have hindered the manifestation of God’s
glory in the groom’s life. For one reason or the other I love King James
Version of the bible but I own a New King James Version. I have always
wanted to buy one but for a reason or the other it did not materialize.
After service on a very cold Sunday, I walked into a corner shop or
supermarket to buy some beverages with the last seven pounds on me. As I
walked into the shop, an elderly man saw me with my huge NKJV bible and
began to tease me. He asked about the church service and we got talking
about bible and all that. While we were chatting, the Holy Spirit laid
it on my mind to give this man two pounds out of the seven pounds to get
a beverage for himself. I did as I was told but this old man refused.
Instead he invited me to his house which was around the shop and I went
with him. On getting to his house, I got to know that he was a pastor
and a theologian. He had the bible in every language. To cut the long
story short, I left his house that day with a brand new TBS KJV bible
worth over sixty pounds. Because I was willing to part with my two
pounds and I obeyed the Holy Spirit, I got a gift of over sixty pounds.
Whatever the Lord asks you to do, please do it. He has a reason for
asking you to do it.Brethren every of God’s instruction you carry out is
a step towards your breakthrough. Every time you obey God, you are a
step closer to your miracle.
KEY WORD: What He says to you, do it. Every time you obey God, you are a step closer to your miracle.
