38 Days of Miracles: The Wedding Wine
This 30 Days Series will lead us to Touch the Hem of Jesus' Robe by taking a look at the the 37 +1 Miracles of Jesus that are recorded in the Bible. The Word - "On the third day there was a wedding at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Jesus also was invited to the wedding with his disciples. When the wine ran out, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.” And Jesus said to her, “Woman, what does this have to do with me? My hour has not yet come.” His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”
Now there were six stone water jars there for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding twenty or thirty gallons. Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water.” And they filled them up to the brim. And he said to them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the feast.” So they took it. When the master of the feast tasted the water now become wine, and did not know where it came from (though the servants who had drawn the water knew), the master of the feast called the bridegroom and said to him, “Everyone serves the good wine first, and when people have drunk freely, then the poor wine. But you have kept the good wine until now.” This, the first of his signs, Jesus did at Cana in Galilee, and manifested his glory. And his disciples believed in him." John 2:1-11 ESV
A Thought - Jesus' first miracle was turning water into wine. There is a lot to say about this miracle, because it is rich with symbolism. However, let's look at what Mary said. She said, "Do whatever he tells you." That is the best motherly advice ever given. Do what Jesus tells you to do. 5 little words... Mary said 5 words that will change your life if you try to live them out.
A Prayer - Lord, I choose to do what You have told me to do. It is going to take more than I can offer. Please fill me with your Word, empower me with the Holy Spirit, and make me a good steward of all you put in my hands. - In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
