Sunday Meditation – Obedience Unlocks Miracles

They did so, and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. – John 2:9

Jesus turned plain water into a choice wine! That was the first miracle ever done by Him! Most of the times, our miracles are delayed due to too much of logic and reasoning, too much of trying to make sense out of everything, a miracle is often blocked by ‘disobedience’.

We read in this passage that Jesus commanded His disciples to fill the jars with water. Obviously, it does not make any sense, and I am sure it must have not made any sense to the disciples either. But they obeyed instead of asking questions or trying to find logic behind the act. And then what happened? Guests had the choicest of wines!

Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water”; so they filled them to the brim. – John 2:7

Thus, we should simply do what Jesus tells us.
