Illogical Obedience

This morning, I was reading my Bible and read a familiar story, but took some time to just think a little bit about it. Pastor Jeff Leake, pastor at Allison Park Church, gives an illustration for thinking about the word of God. He takes a rag and soaks it in water. He takes it out and starts wring it out little by little, one part at a time, trying to get all there is out of the rag.

I was wringing out the story about Jesus' first miracle, you know, the controversial one about Jesus turning water into wine...or was it grape juice, kool-aide, or...who cares. It was miraculous! But what really got me, was that his mother, after telling Jesus the problem, looked at the servants and said, "Do whatever he tells you." Wow, what a statement. Think about it. He would tell them to take 20-30 gallon pots that were used to wash feet and to purify the people. Drinking out of what was used to clean feet, I'm a thinking...not so much! But they did it. And they were amazed.

Sometimes Jesus calls us to do things that don't make sense, disturb the comfort and logic within us. But He already knows the final outcome. He just needs his servants to pull through. So the question is, am I a servant who thinks I know more than my master, or will I surrender all to Him and do whatever He tells me to do? Oh, that we might be true servants!
