Fill Your Jars.

On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there, and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. When the wine was gone, Jesus’ mother said to him, “They have no more wine.”

“Dear woman, why do you involve me?” Jesus replied, “My time has not yet come.”

His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”

Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons.

Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water”; so they filled them to the brim.

Then he told them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet.”

They did so, and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside and said, “Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now.” (John 2:1-10 NIV84)
Fill the jars with water.
Jesus tells the men to fill the jars full of water. They didn’t want water, they wanted wine. Yet, they filled the jars with water. Why? Jesus said so.
Fill your jars.
Read the Word. Share the Gospel. Do whatever God has called you to do and Jesus will change the water to wine.
If we are faithful in the small things, in the details, in the minor areas of our lives, Jesus will handle the things that we can’t.
Those men couldn’t change the water to wine, but they could bring Jesus the water.
We need to bring what we have to Jesus and let him do what only he can do.
Let Jesus turn your minor obedience into a major blessing.
