IMPERFECT, BUT AVAILABLE & USABLE | John 2:6 | My Jesus Today – Lesson 28 | David Adeniji
Okay, let’s rewind a bit. We’re almost forgetting a significant agent in the performance of that miracle. Yes, it may look like the pots are lifeless, but they teach us 4 wonderful lesson. Yes, ‘the pots’. First, there were 6 of them. Six is one short of seven. And seven signifies perfection. So, six signifies being ‘incomplete’. Imperfection that’s so close to being perfect.
Yet, these pots were chosen. God is the one who completes us. By ourselves, and in ourselves, we aren’t perfect. But His grace has made us perfect (Eph 2:8). Hallelujah! But take a second look at those 6 pots, interestingly, mentioned in verse 6 – “Six waterpots were set there”. These pots were ‘available’ even though incomplete, despite their imperfection. God doesn’t called the qualified, he qualifies the called. The called, who answers His call. Your availability in God’s presence qualifies you for perfection and completion.
Now, take a third look at those pots. Our Lord Jesus said, “Fill the water pots with water”. Meaning, the pots were empty, fill them. No one fills a filled pot. Will you kindly submit yourself from that position of know it all and has it all ? Will you stop looking at people as though you’re better than them (Rom 12:3)? Spiritual thirst is key in spiritual growth. There’s already all of God in you, according to Col 2:9-10. But you’ll enjoy Him to the extent that you create room for him. Wait! Bible even says “I will pour water on him that is thirsty” Isaiah 44:3. Thirst is a significant spiritual feeling of dependence on God, not some times, but ALL THE TIME.
Now, take a last look at those pots. Why didn’t Jesus Say “Fill the water pots with wine? He didn’t even call them winepots. The pots were known for water and not for wine. He preferred to fill them with what everyone knew they were meant for, and then convert to that which they were needed for. Hallelujah. God starts with you from where you are, to where you should be. He always takes you from the known to the unknown. He uses what you have to give you what you need. So don’t try to force change from a height. Start from where you are, give what you have, love the people you have… but start Now!
