Through weakness to strength
“Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water” (John 2:7).
The miracle of Cana has been shining out these days. “Fill the waterpots with water,” has been the watchword, undiluted weakness transmuted into undiluted strength. It seemed to me as if the first thing we expect of God is that He will tinge our water with the wine of His power. Then when we learn a little better we look for His wine, but feel it must still have an admixture of our water. It is but slowly that we come to see that the mingling is not His way with us. It is all weakness up to the brim, exchanged for His “All Power.”
