The best for last

John 2:1-11…

Situations come into our lives, or we enter into them, and these situations provide an opportunity for Jesus to demonstrate who He is. Usually the situation is some event or emergency that, without the grace of God, the cause is lost. Those that know Jesus will ask Him to intervene, but do not be surprised when He examines your motives for asking. Your sense of spiritual timing must be attuned to His if He is to act. He may indeed act, but He wants you to know that His overall purposes must be kept in focus by the faithful.

Obedience is a key at this point. We may not understand all of the orchestration of the music, but we must direct all the singers in the song to the sound of the Maestro’s voice. Jesus will transform our old, watered down ways into the new wine of the messianic age (John 15:5). God’s purpose is to take man in his brokenness, his emptiness and his lifelessness, and give to him life; this is what He does with us (2 Corinthians 4:7).

Be sure to travel beyond the joy of having Jesus enter into the situation, and beyond the celebration at just how wonderful He does things. We must look to the One who does these things more fully because of these things. Are you enjoying the good graces of God without giving proper glory to God? He only does what He does because He is who He is. The celebration of victory will fade, but the celebration of the Victor must live on.

Our Lord takes His time and saves the best for last. Be aware that Jesus is like this. You may marvel at His presence and power in your life and situation, but He will enlighten you further and embolden you faster as you faithfully travel with Him through the unfolding drama of the dream in your life. Run hard after Jesus; the best is yet to come.
