Water to Wine-4
John 2:2 “And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.”
John 2:3 “And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine.”
John 2:4 “Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.”
John 2:5 “His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do [it].”
We must learn to keep company with Jesus by inviting Him to travel the journey of life with us. If Mary had not invited Him, what would have happened when the wine finished? It would have been disastrous and the wedding a mess. Shame and disgrace would have been the outcome!
Quit travelling the journey of life without Him and His disciples. “And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage.” (John 2:2)
Jesus here represents the God factor in your journey through life, while His disciples represent fellow believers, who can encourage us on the trip. Remember, “Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.” (Proverbs 27:17).
If you don’t keep company with God and believers that can sharpen you, when discouragement sets in, you might give up on life’s journey. So, watch the company you keep.
When the wine finished all Mary had to do was to call Jesus’ attention to it, because He was invited! In other words, she called on him easily because “she was travelling with Him”.
If I may ask, who are you travelling with? Who are those in your boat? Remember, the disciples once had a serious challenge while trying to cross the sea and a storm arose. All they did was call on Jesus.
At another time, some guys were also trying to cross a sea and a storm also arose, they nearly drowned because they had a man called Jonah on board!
Friend, who do you have on your life’s boat? Jesus or Jonah? Iron or wood? Choose your company wisely!
