“What I am anxious to see in Christian believers is a beautiful paradox. I want to see in them the joy of finding God while at the same time they are blessedly pursuing Him. I want to see in them the great joy of having God yet always wanting Him.” A. W. Tozer

Sermon #12: What to Do When You are in Need



"When the wine was gone, Jesus' mother said to him, 'They have no more wine.'" - John 2:3 (NIV)

To whom do you turn whenever you face lack or any other challenge?

The moment they face challenges, some people turn away from the Lord and begin to look for solutions from strange places and equally strange characters.

Is it a need that you have? Is it a problem? Why won't you turn to your Source in every situation?

Jesus and Mary were at a wedding. The wine had run out. Mary turned to Jesus because she knew He was the Source. 

"Son, won't you do something about the situation?" Mary asked. Jesus had no wine on Him, yet Mary still believed that by some means Jesus could deliver wine to the guests and keep the joy alive.

Here is how the matter ended: "...the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine..." - John 2:9 (NIV).

I am humbled; we have a limitless Source. From water we can get wine. Praise be to Him!
