Trust and Obey

His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.” John 2:5 NIV

Do you remember the story of the wedding at Cana where they were running out of wine? Mary told the servants to do what Jesus told them, and Jesus solved the problem by turning six large stone jugs of water into wine.

Like the servants at the wedding, we too should listen to Jesus and obey.

One time I was at a special church service. During the service, there was a call for a special mission project that the whole NJ Conference was supporting. The speaker touched my heart, and I sat in my pew praying as the offering plates were passed.

Something--or someone--spoke to me, telling me to give as much as I could, and so when the offering plate got to me I emptied my wallet into it.

I believe that was Jesus speaking to me, and I did what He told me, giving everything I had. It wasn't really that much of a hardship for me. Later that day I found an ATM and refilled my wallet.

But the point is, Jesus told me what to do, and I did it.

Does Jesus speak to you? How do you know it's Jesus? Do you do whatever he tells you?
