I am always left to wonder about the way Mary kind of ignored this: And Jesus said to her, “Woman, how does your concern affect me? My hour has not yet come.” and the way she told the servants to "do whatever He tells you." I see her as the first true believer in Him. Mary demonstrated both KNOWLEDGE and faith. She KNEW that He could do something about the lack of wine, and she had faith that He would do something about it. The knowledge is what gets me every time. Mary was apparently so in tune with Jesus, and so in tune with God that she KNEW. We are told to listen for God. We are told to be still and know that He is Lord. Mary, from what we can see in scripture, DID listen, and Mary KNEW. She "held all these things in her heart" from the beginning of His life, and she KNEW that He was/is/shall be.
Thank you for sending Your son to save me. Thank you for giving me a mighty example of faith in His mother, the woman he gives to us all as our mother, Mary. Please help me to imitate her example in mother hood, and in discipleship.
