Faith in Action

There was a wedding in Cana and Jesus as well as His disciples were invited. Mary, the mother of Jesus, was there too.

When they ran out of wine at the wedding, Mary stated the problem to Jesus. His response? "What does that have to do with me?"

But Mary was not daunted by the seeming lack of interest and made a demand on the power of God by her words to the servants, "Do whatever He says." Jesus then gave instructions to the servants and a miracle happened.

Now Jesus did not do this because of His mother but because of His Father who responded to the faith and action of Mary. I base this claim on Jesus' own words in John 5:19, "Then Jesus answered and said to them, 'Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do, for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner.'"

God was aware of the situation but He did not intervene until He was drawn upon.

Is there a situation in your life that needs intervention? Ask God! He answers the prayer of faith.
