Do Whatever He Tells You
January 23, 2022 / John 2:1-11
Focus for today: obedience is the pathway into the amazing life that God has destined for you.
Jesus is the Good Shepherd and we are His sheep (see John 10:11 and John 10:27)
Jesus’s job is to speak and lead, my job is to and
God already has a plan for your life (see Ephesians 2:10)
You could be one of obedience away from a completely different life
TEXT: JOHN 2:1-11
The next day there was a wedding celebration in the village of Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there, 2 and Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the celebration. 3 The wine supply ran out during the festivities, so Jesus’ mother told him, “They have no more wine.”
4 “Dear woman, that’s not our problem,” Jesus replied. “My time has not yet come.”
5 But his mother told the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”
6 Standing nearby were six stone water jars, used for Jewish ceremonial washing. Each could hold twenty to thirty gallons. 7 Jesus told the servants, “Fill the jars with water.” When the jars had been filled, 8 he said, “Now dip some out, and take it to the master of ceremonies.” So the servants followed his instructions.
9 When the master of ceremonies tasted the water that was now wine, not knowing where it had come from (though, of course, the servants knew), he called the bridegroom over. 10 “A host always serves the best wine first,” he said. “Then, when everyone has had a lot to drink, he brings out the less expensive wine. But you have kept the best until now!”
11 This miraculous sign at Cana in Galilee was the first time Jesus revealed his glory. And his disciples believed in him.

 It won’t always make
obedience requires me to trust when I don’t understand
we must trust God, not our own understanding (see Proverbs 3:5)

 Take it one at a time
How do I know what God’s will is for my life?
+ GENERAL WILL
+ SPECIFIC WILL
what “next step” of obedience is the Lord asking you to take?
