Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
His mother said to the servants, “Whatever He says to you, do it.” – Jn. 2:5

Jesus and His disciples were at a wedding. But there was a problem. “They have no wine,” Mary told Jesus (v 3). Jesus didn’t promise Mary a miracle! But Mary knew that when you linger on Jesus’ word – when you listen to what He says and do what He asks – miracles will follow.

This is the formula for the miraculous: “Whatever [Jesus] says to you, do it!” His instructions might sound ridiculous. The sacrifice He demands might be arduous! But the end result will be you – along with everyone around you – seeing the glory of God.

What has Jesus asked you to do? Do it. And then stay so close to His heart that whatever He asks you to do in the future – no matter how big or how small – you are ready to say yes.

Prayer:

Father, I will do whatever Jesus says! I will do whatever You ask. Help me not only to accurately discern Your word and Your will, but also to step out and do what You say. Make me willfully obedient, in Jesus’ name!
