three days or in an instant

So, just after the miracle of acceleration of water into mature wine, Jesus goes to the temple. When asked for a sign there, he told the teachers, tear down this temple and I will rebuild it in three days (whose temple we ARE). Again, this promise of accelerated growth.

Jesus is able to bring people to full maturity instantly. Often it takes time, so that we can learn of God and His Ways as we grow; but He can also do it in a moment, or three days– making our spirits suddenly older.

Our day, is one of accelerated growth. We see this even in the natural world around us, increase, jumps ahead..Jesus is preparing us. He is the one who causes us to stand (Romans 14:4)–the same one who called and wooed us is able to mature us in an instant!
