Jars

Cup. Pencil. Hat. Blanket. Socks. Couch. Jar.

And the list goes on. That list being the ordinary, boring, even mundane things of our lives.

But even if these things are mundane, they can be important.

Check out these verses from John 2:

6Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons. b7Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water”; so they filled them to the brim.”

My previous post explained the miracle that Jesus performed.

This post shows us that the normal everyday things can be used in miraculous ways.

These jars were common in every household. Servants would use the water to wash feet. Nothing special about the jars.

Until Jesus got a hold of them.

I like the next part. They filled them to the brim.

When Jesus is requesting something of you, go all out!

You can read the rest of the story on your own. I just wanted to highlight the use of the jars.


We all have jars in our life. The simple things. The mundane things.

In the hands of Jesus, they could provide miracles. We don’t always know what Jesus will do but we can always be ready.

Here are my jars Lord. They are filled to the brim.
