Water to Wine-7

John 2:6 “And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three jirkins apiece.”
John 2:7 “Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim.”
…From yesterday…
Six also means weakness and sin. Seven in bible numerology is the number of God, divine perfection and completeness, when you subtract one from it, you have six, meaning imperfection, talking about man. Man without God is imperfect, weak and sinful.
Man came from the dust, when you break down stone you have dust or sand. These pots were made from dust. These pots signify the best of the labour of man. They had six pots, the best man could offer, yet the wine got finished in all!
Your best effort without the God factor will never be good enough. You will always run out of wine. All our works are like filthy rags, the only thing that authenticates it is grace, which is the God factor in our life.
Don’t do by works what can only be obtained by grace. When the God factor comes upon your work, you triumph sweatlessly. Grace makes our results to far outweigh our efforts; never you forget that.
When Jesus was set for the miracle, He commanded them to add water to the empty pots. Water in the bible represents the word of God (Ephesians 5:26). Water signifies life, water cleanses and purifies as well.
The gist is this: our labour will always fail. It will always come to zero. The only way to keep our labour productive is by adding the word, the God factor!
Jesus is the word that gives life and purifies us from all sins and lifts every weight of guilt from off our shoulders. “Except the Lord builds the house, they labour in vain that build it” (Psalm 127:1).
Also note that Jesus told them not just to add the word to their labour, he said they should let it fill to the brim and overflow.
