whatever He says to you, do it

John 2

v5

His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do [it].

Like Jesus' mother told the servants to do whatever Jesus said to them, we should do whatever Jesus says for us to do.

Sometimes it seems like we have certain "acceptable sins," that don't seem serious, and we're used to doing them. The "sins which so easily beset us." (Paraphrased from Hebrews 12:1). Well, they are things the Lord has said He doesn't want us doing. We need to be willing to sacrifice our own pleasure, even to suffer, if needed, to stop sinning.

We sin because we're deceived, and we want to be happy. But we wonder why, as believers, we don't have such a happy life. We need to give up those seemingly little things in which we think we "can't help it." And then, as we do "whatever the Lord says to us," we can actually end up being truly happy.
