“Whatever he tells you, do it.” (John 2:5)
Obedience to God always results in blessing. Many times we experience a blessing far beyond any reasonable expectation.
This happened when Jesus turned the water into wine at a wedding feast. The host of the wedding feast ran out of wine and the mother of Jesus told the servants that whatever Jesus told them to do, they should do it. When they obeyed the instructions of Jesus to pour the water into large jars, Jesus turned the water into the best tasting wine of the wedding feast. This was totally unexpected since the best wine was usually consumed at the beginning of the celebration.
Professions of our faith in God mean little without confirming acts of obedience that are in response to our relationship with Jesus Christ. Our obedience comes in response to our love for him. As we practice listening to him and obeying him, he will reveal more of himself to us.
When we read God’s Word and put it into practice in our daily lives, we understand more and more what the Lord wants us to do. We will become obedient from the heart—a heart deeply planted in the soil of God’s Word. We will develop a desire to do whatever he tells us to do.
Today, ask yourself:In what ways am I currently doing the things that God wants me to do
