“Do whatever He tells you.”
– John 2:5b
The last words recorded by any Gospel coming from Mary, the Theotokos, are no mistake. They are not just the last bit of narrative passing by on the way to the next story. John records these words purposefully. John did not only know Mary, she lived with him and they were given to each other by Christ as mother and son.
John gives us these words as the the summation of Mary’s life and as a gift. Her life must be our life. Her words our words. Do you want an epitaph for your tombstone? May God let these be the words "I did what Christ told me to do.”
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me a sinner.
