1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Eph 2:13,18 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ... For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.

Matthew 6: 9-ff:
9 “Pray, then, in this way:‘Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.
10 ‘Your kingdom come. Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven.
11 ‘Give us this day our daily bread.
12 ‘And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 ‘And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil. [For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.’]

Okay. You protest that you must go through Jesus. He, the Lord, the Christ, tells us to go through the Father (see above; a direct quote from HIM).

She, Mary, tells the wine stewards, “DO WHATEVER HE TELLS YOU.” He had protested to her observation that “they have no more wine” by saying “Woman, what has this to do with Me?” However, His Mother had asked Him.

So, suppose I wanted, on my OWN volition, to ask Jesus’ Mother for something? It is my decision, and He did respond to her observation, “They have no wine” by CREATING 150 gallons of choice stuff. It was so good even the wine steward was blown away!

And so a good Son answers the desire of His Mother held in her heart!
