Trust- The Wedding at Cana
By Pastor Sharon Williams
John 2: 1-11
Jesus and his mother with his disciples attended the wedding.
Wine supply ran out – why? poor planning, too cheap to buy enough
Why did Mary help, it wasn’t her responsibility?
1. Mary went to Jesus and revealed the problem – not the solution
First time Jesus revealed His glory (verse 11)
Why did Mary think Jesus could fix the problem, what did she expect Jesus to do?
2. Servants told ‘do whatever he tells you.”
3. Mary walked away, done.
Faith and hope. (faith is the substance of things hoped for)
Trust – firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability or strength of someone or something.
Baw-takh (Hebrew) confident, safe, secure, bold
Pist yoo o (Greek) place confidence in, to have faith, trust.
“Through Christ you have come to trust in God. And you have placed your faith and hope in God because he raised Christ from the dead and gave him great glory.”
1 Peter 1:21 NLT
When we know God, trust comes naturally
Problem: we don’t feel worthy of His intervention. We have guilt and expect reprimand. We think of God in human context. He is not a man that he should lie.
Numbers 23:19 God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?
