SERMON TITLE: THE SERVANTS THAT DREW WATER

“FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD, THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH, BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE. FOR GOD SENT NOT HIS SON INTO THE WORLD TO CONDEMN THE WORLD; BUT THAT THE WORLD THROUGH HIM MIGHT BE SAVED. HE THAT BELIEVETH ON HIM IS NOT CONDEMNED: BUT HE THAT BELIEVETH NOT IS CONDEMNED ALREADY, BECAUSE HE HATH NOT BELIEVED IN THE NAME OF THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD.” JOHN 3:16-18

TURN IN YOUR BIBLES TO JOHN 2:1-11 “AND THE THIRD DAY THERE WAS A MARRIAGE IN CANA OF GALILEE; AND THE MOTHER OF JESUS WAS THERE: AND BOTH JESUS WAS CALLED, AND HIS DISCIPLES, TO THE MARRIAGE. AND WHEN THEY WANTED WINE, THE MOTHER OF JESUS SAITH UNTO HIM, THEY HAVE NO WINE. JESUS SAITH UNTO HER, WOMAN, WHAT HAVE I TO DO WITH THEE? MINE IS NOT YET COME. HIS MOTHER SAITH UNTO THE SERVANTS, WHATSOEVER HE SAITH UNTO YOU, DO IT. AND THERE WERE SET THERE SIX WATERPOTS OF STONE, AFTER THE MANNER OF THE PURIFYING OF THE JEWS, CONTAINING TWO OR THREE FIRKINS APIECE. JESUS SAITH UNTO THEM, FILL THE WATERPOTS WITH WATER. AND THEY FILLED THEM UP TO THE BRIM. AND HE SAITH UNTO THEM, DRAW OUT NOW, AND BEAR UNTO THE GOVERNOR OF THE FEAST. AND THEY BARE IT. WHEN THE RULER OF THE FEAST HAD TASTED THE WATER THAT WAS MADE WINE, AND KNEW NOT WHENCE IT WAS: (BUT THE SERVANTS WHICH DREW THE WATER KNEW;) THE GOVERNOR OF THE FEAST CALLED THE BRIDEGROOM, AND SAITH UNTO HIM, EVERY MAN AT THE BEGINNING, DOTH SET FORTH GOOD WINE; AND WHEN MEN HAVE WELL DRUNK, THEN THAT WHICH IS WORSE: BUT THOU HAST KEPT THE GOOD WINE UNTIL NOW. THIS BEGINNING OF MIRACLES DID JESUS IN CANA OF GALILEE, AND MANIFESTED FORTH HIS GLORY; AND HIS DISCIPLES BELIEVED ON HIM.”

I WANT TO PREACH TO YOU THIS MORNING ON THE SERVANTS THAT DREW THE WATER. THERE’S A LOT OF PEOPLE IN THE WORLD TODAY THAT ARE DEPENDING ON GOD FOR A LOT OF THINGS IN THEIR LIVES. WE’RE ALWAYS LOOKING AT WHAT WE WANT AND WHAT WE NEED BUT WE NEED TO SOMETIMES STEP BACK AND LOOK AT WHAT THE LORD NEEDS. I’LL TELL YOU WHAT GOD NEEDS TODAY, HE NEEDS SOME SERVANTS THAT’S WILLING TO DRAW FROM THE WATER. THERE’S A LOT OF CHRISTIANS IN THE WORLD TODAY AND THAT’S WHERE IT STOPS. THEIR SAVED BY THE GRACE OF GOD AND SEALED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT OF PROMISE BUT THEY DON’T DO ANYTHING ELSE.

NOTE IN VERSE 1 IT TALKS ABOUT THE THIRD DAY. WHEN WE THINK OF THE THIRD DAY WE THINK ABOUT THE RESURRECTION OF CHRIST. IN JOHN 2:19 JESUS TOLD THE PEOPLE THIS: “DESTROY THIS TEMPLE, AND IN THREE DAYS I WILL RAISE IT UP.” IN JOHN 11:25 WHEN JESUS WAS TALKING TO MARTHA HE SAID: “I AM THE RESURRECTION, AND THE LIFE: HE THAT BELIEVETH IN ME, THOUGH HE WERE DEAD, YET SHALL HE LIVE.” I’M GLAD I KNOW A LIVING SAVIOR TODAY. IN THE BOOK OF PHILIPPIANS 3:10 PAUL SAID “THAT I MAY KNOW HIM, AND THE POWER OF HIS RESURRECTION, AND THE FELLOWSHIP OF HIS SUFFERINGS, BEING MADE CONFORMABLE UNTO HIS DEATH.” THERE’S SOME POWER IN THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS CHRIST.
