Obedience Births Blessings

Screenshot_2014-05-30-04-40-29-1Today’s Scripture: His mother (Mary), saith unto the servants, “Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it” (John 2:5 KJV).

The beginning of Moses’ miracles was turning water to blood (Ex. 7:20). The beginning of Christ’s miracles was turning water to wine. This is symbolic of the difference between the Law of Moses and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. His turning water to wine gives the knowledge of grace.

The first mark of the Messiah was his first miracle of changing water into wine (John 2:1-11). This miracle was actually a visible parable. Our Lord performed a profoundly symbolic act at the wedding in Cana of Galilee. He took something that belonged to the realm of the inanimate world, “water” and changed it into a living substance, “wine”. He took something that belonged to the realm of mere matter and changed it into something that is forever an expression of joy and life.

Because of their obedience to Jesus, the wedding attendants filled six waterpots to the brim with water as he instructed them to do. From this act of obedience they all were blessed with new wine. This act of change is symbolic of what Christ came to do. He came to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord’s favor (Isa. 61:1-3). He came to declare the day of grace, when God purposed to take human beings in their brokenness, their emptiness, and their lifelessness and give them life.

The changing of water to wine; the woman with the issue of blood receiving healing as she touched the hem of His garment; the man with the palsy at the pool of Bathesda, the angel had not come but Jesus challenged the mans faith. If he would not have believed, he would not have received healing. He was expecting to receive a miracle. If we lose our expectations we lose our chance for a miracle. Jesus performed numerous miracles, including calming the storm, feeding masses of people with 2 fish and 5 loaves, curing disease, healing the sick, and raising the dead.

Christ is the link and the ladder between heaven and earth. There is a great lesson to be learned in the blending of the sacred with the secular. There is a need to turn the ordinary life over to the Lord. Those that expect the Lord’s favor must observe His orders with ready obedience. By miracles Christ produces the best of its kind. Obedience births blessings!

May you too have a spiritual experience with our Lord.

Blessings of joy and peace to you!

  1. What an awesome article. I learned something new about Jesus turning water into a living substance. Also, I find it interesting that water is inanimate, but it’s essential to all living things. Your blog gives me such insight into the Word of God. Thank You Evang. Jeanie Shepard!

  2. Good morning Cherese. Thank you for the comment. Water has so many life given qualities. I find it amazing that in Gen. 1:6, God said let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. So God made the expanse and separated the water under the expanse fromt the water above it. This was done on the second day of creation. Who amazing is that! Let’s continue to glean all that God has for us!
    May God continue to bless us with revelational knowledge.
