Jesus said unto them, Fill the water pots with water.
And they filled them to the brim.
And He said unto them,
DRAW OUT NOW, and bear to the governor of the feast. And they bear it. John 2:7-8
I get so tickled with Revelation that I can’t keep it to myself!
(Jesus actually says this didn’t He? That a Lamp isn’t meant to be hidden.)
This miracle in John 2 illustrates what happens when a believer taps in to the Water of the Word.
He then becomes effective.
Something He wasn’t before-
And now displaying the Glory of God.
(Which, by the way, is excellence. Not saving the Best for last, but rather giving His Best, First.)
Notice though, that when Jesus filled them with the water, they were full.
Jesus is never lacking.
And neither are you.
And He wouldn’t put you on display if you were less than full.
So why is it that most aren’t displaying the Glory?
Because they never draw it out.
Look at the witness to this again in scripture.
That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing that is in you in Christ Jesus.
Of how many good things?
I find it interesting that the water pots Jesus filled were about 2-3 firkins.
A comment in the margin said that a firkin was about 9 gallons.
Nine is the number of fruit bearing.
Three is the number that represents the Wholeness of God.
Also, Spirit, Soul and Body.
We can bear thirty, sixty, and a hundred fold.
How much we bear = How much we draw!
Jesus deposited the Fulness of Himself by His Spirit into our “pots.”
We have more than full capacity to bear.
We just have to be obedient to His direction like the disciples were.
Make a draw on the Well of Salvation inside of you today.
Then display it to the Governor!
