Day 25 - Confidence In Jesus | February Devotional in the Gospel of John

Tuesday, February 25, 2020 Bryan Hudson 0 Comments

John 2:5, His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”

Jesus mother, like others in his family, may have had their doubts about Jesus for a time (Mark 3:31-35). It may have been that they were overwhelmed by the magnitude of His words and His works once He began to operate in His ministry. Sometimes we struggle to relate to people we know, even family, when God uses them in unusual ways.

The brief season of Mary's concern passed. She became fully committed to her son, and her Savior. She gained full confidence in Jesus' purpose and power. By the time of the wedding at Cana, she knew Jesus could do anything.

When the wine ran out at the wedding celebration, Mary told Jesus about it. While He did not seem all that happy about having this brought to His attention, Jesus was willing to honor the confidence of his mother.

Mary sensed this and said to the people, “Whatever Jesus says, do it.” A miracle soon followed. Jesus turned water into wine, without using grapes.

I am blessed by Mary's example of placing public confidence in Jesus. I am also reminded that our Lord and Savior is willing to work with small things that can become a great witness to God's power.

Reflection Question: In what areas do you need more confidence in what Christ can do?
