The caring Jesus

jesus-316268_640John 2:4: And Jesus said to her, “Woman, what does this have to do with me? My hour has not yet come.” (ESV)

Though Jesus seems not to want to be disturbed by his mother about the wine finishing in that marriage, he could not help but be of help, in a way that only him can be, through supernatural provision (John 2:1-11).

Here we see the heart of Jesus, how he cannot but act when things are brought to his notice, when by telling him about it, asking him, we acknowledge his power, acknowledge that he is the one who has the solution.

When we use the name of Jesus, we are not just a ritual. He said if we ask anything in his name he will do it (John 14:13-14). He does not want the fact that he is no longer physically present reduce our faith in him.

When we call upon his name, the caring Jesus goes to work. In the story of the water turning to wine, we did not see the situation immediately changed when Mary drew his attention to the need, but the process began.

At first, it seems Jesus was not going to do anything about it, but there is care in the genetic makeup of Jesus, and he always acts to type, he always answers.
