Obedience, Faith, and Abundance in the Miracle

Posted by admin on 15 August 2022 in John |

John 2:6-9a

Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from eighty to a hundred and twenty litres.

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.

Jesus involved the servants in His miracle (7, 8). That is, Jesus uses our obedience and faith. After their obedience was complete, Jesus did what only God could do (changing the water to wine) (9). Six jars, each holding 80~120L (6) and filling them to the brim (7) show the abundance.

Jesus used our five loaves and two fish to feed five thousand (John 6:1-15) even though He could feed them without anything from us. The abundance in this miracle is shown in the fact that they received as much as they wanted (John 6:11) and the disciples gathered and filled twelve baskets with pieces of the five barley loaves left over (John 6:13).

They had to take away the stone of the tomb by faith before Jesus raised the four-day dead Lazarus (John 11:38-44).
