“Dear woman, why do you involve Me?” Jesus replied. “My time has not yet come.”
( John 2:4 / Jesus talking with His mother, Mary. )
They were at a wedding party and Mary, seeing the smallest of opportunities, got Jesus involved. She probably didn’t have a clue as to what He might do, but she knew that whatever He did do, it would be life changing. After all, He is the Son of God and though Jesus told her that His time to be revealed was not on this particular evening, Mary pressed the issue by telling the servants to do whatever He would tell them to do.
No doubt, the tenacity of this woman was treasured by Jesus. She was insisting that He transition from being her son to becoming their Lord. Everyone had come to the wedding to celebrate and to enjoy a party, but she insisted on involving Him in that fun setting. She did not know what He would do, but whatever He would do, it would be wonderful and glorifying to God.
As the story unfolds, Jesus helped with a problem of a shortage of wine. So, with the servants becoming involved at His request, He turned a large supply of water into wine. Very good wine!
This was the first of many miracles that Jesus performed during His ministry time, miracles that accompanied His preaching and teaching, demonstrating and proving that He is the Son of God.
In the course of your daily life, how frequently do you involve Jesus, especially in the fun times? We don’t need to know ahead of time what He will do or say, all He needs is our personal invitation to get involved, and then our commitment to follow through and to do whatever He tells us to do.
Get ready to be amazed at what He will do in the midst of our fun-filled lives. God is about to bring glory to His name, and to welcome people into His kingdom!
