Read: John 2:11-12 (NKJV)

11 This beginning of signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and [a]manifested His glory; and His disciples believed in Him.

The miracle of turning water into wine was the “beginning of signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee” (v.11). We are to note that Jesus responded to a request from his beloved mother, Mary. A very important principle in our relationship with Christ is established by what the mother, Mary, told those serving officials. “Whatever He says to you, do it” (v.5).

This is obedience. This important principle is very fundamental in our relationship with God. God desires our obedience built on bur love for Him. He requires us to love Him with all our heart, with all our soul, and with all our strength.

Love makes us obey Him by keeping His commandments. Jesus said “You are my friends if you do whatsoever, I command you” (John 15:14). For us to know what He commands us to do, we must be close to Him to hear Him. This closeness with the Lord is attained by obediently studying the word of God in faith and in prayer.

PRAYER: Dear Lord, take away the stony heart from me and grant me the heart of flesh that will enable me to obey you in everything. Amen.
