Immediate Obedience

“His mother said to the servants, “Whatever He says to you, do it.”
-John 2:5

The events circling this passage was the wedding at Cana. The wine was gone.
In steps mom; Jesus’ Mom with an executive decision. “My Son can handle this!”
She’s confident and faith-filled.

I see two-folds in the above passage

  • Mother said
  • Immediate obedience

Mom’s words carried weight and authority. The servants had a charge to act immediately.
There was no time to waste.

God can use individuals that have influence in our lives to speak to us concerning being obedient to what He says to do.
I’ve definitely struggled with immediate disobedience. Keep in mind also that partial disobedience is still disobedience.
A friend recently lovingly, but sternly, reminded me of an area that I was walking in disobedience in. I graciously accepted her words and encouragement.

It’s only for my own good that “whatever He says to you, do it.” gets done!

When time is wasted…

How many lives go un-affected?
How many blessings are we missing out on?
How long will God keep reminding us to “do the last thing”?
How often is the Holy Spirit quenched?
How often do we seem we lose the power of God working through us?
How quickly do we lose fellowship with Him?

We are servants of the Lord. Whatever He says to you. Do it.
Practice instant obedience to God and His Word.
