Turning Water Into Wine, of all the miracles Jesus performed, this one seemed so out of character. It was a party saver–it made his momma proud, but what really did the miracle show for Jesus ministry. Well, first it showed that he could do amazing things. There was no parlor trick for changing he composition of liquids. He did not simply change one glass, he changed gallons of water into gallons of wine.
Next, the miracle showed God does things right. He did not make a cheap or wimpy wine–no this was the best stuff. The steward was confused–this stuff should have led! When God is involved he does not do half way or sub-standard. That was a critical thing for the disciples to see and for us to see as well. As God remains involved in our live, he does things so much better than we ever could. His plan is always better than our plan.
Finally, it showed God cares about all aspects of our lives, not just the spiritual component. God celebrated in the wedding and oh what a wedding gift. We, as a family, need to realize that God cares about every little thing. He is there for us in all aspects of our lives, not just church. He loves that we celebrate and he loves the covenant of marriage. it models his covenant to us. So this was the perfect 1st for Jesus, Cheers!!!
God Bless You
On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there
and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding.
When the wine was gone, Jesus’ mother said to him, “They have no more wine.”
“Woman, why do you involve me?” Jesus replied. “My hour has not yet come.”
His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”
Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons.
Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water”; so they filled them to the brim.
Then he told them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet.”They did so,
and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside
and said, “Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now.”
