Do it!


(J.R. Miller)

“Whatever He says to you — do it!” John 2:5

How can we know what Jesus says? We cannot hear His voice as the servants at the wedding heard it.

He speaks now to us in His Word, and the reverent heart may always hear what He says as the sacred pages are prayerfully pondered.

He speaks in the conscience that is kept tender by loyal obeying.

He speaks in the providence which brings the present duty to our hand.

There never is any real uncertainty as to what He says, if we are truly intent on knowing His will.

“Whatever He says to you — do it!!” It is the doing which is important. We should never ask questions nor make suggestions, when Jesus has spoken — the one thing for us is obedience. We should never ask what the consequences may be, or what it maycost us — we are simply to obey. Jesus knows why He wants us to do the thing — and that should be reason enough for us.

“If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.” John 14:15
