The people at the wedding in Cana obeyed Jesus when He instructed them to fill the water pots with water. Pastor Ford will explain that their obedience was cooperative, meaning, they played a part in the miracle! In other words, they did what they could do so that Jesus could do what they couldn’t do. And that’s because God is never going to do for us what we should be doing for ourselves.
