Scripture Reading: John 2:7
Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim
Reflection: The servants at the wedding were simply instructed by Jesus to fill the water pots with water. They complied and to their utter amazement, the water turned into wine! A critical look at their response to the instructions of Jesus reveals an important principle of life which anyone who wants to see the fullness of God’s glory must abide by. They did not only fill the pots but they did so to the brim! They could have filled it half way or a bit to the full but they refused to adopt a mediocre approach. Mediocrity speaks about ‘something that is just average, or not very good’. Undoubtedly, whatever level of water the servants had chosen to fill the pots up to would have been the same level of wine they would have received. In life you must have the urge that causes you to go beyond the ordinary in what you do in response to the word of God or to achieve excellence. That is what will cause you to encounter a glorious living!
Prayer: Lord, please help me go all out in my response to whatever you tell me to do and in my endeavors to achieve excellence.
Confession: I will not take a mediocre approach to life. I will go all out and beyond. I will see the fulness of God”s glory!
