Good morning everyone: Father God, please increase our faith and our trust in you, please give us your wonderful peace and joy in our everyday lives. Amen.
JOHN 2:1-10
(The next day there was a wedding ceremony in the village of Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there, and Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the celebration. The wine supply ran out during the festivities, so Jesus mother told him, “They have no more wine.” Dear woman, that’s not our problem,” Jesus replied. “My time has not yet come.” But his mother told the servants , “Do whatever he tells you.” Standing nearby were six stone water jars, used for Jewish ceremonial washing. Each could hold twenty to thirty gallons. Jesus told the servants, “Fill the jars with water.” When the jars had been filled, he said, Now dip some out, and take it to the master of ceremonies.” So the servants followed his instructions. When the master of ceremonies tasted the water that was now wine, not knowing where it had come from (though, of course, the servants knew), he called the bride groom over. “A host always serves the best wine first,” he said. Then when everyone has had alot to drink, he brings out the less expensive wine. But you have kept the best until now.)
We are all a bit competitive when it comes to weddings, at my sons wedding last week, the wine flowed continually, I was so proud of my son and daughter-in-law, everything went to plan, the whole ceremony was amazing. But in the wedding Mary and Jesus went to, things went terribly wrong, they ran out of wine, can you imagine how they felt, embarrassed, uncomfortable, and back then, they couldn’t just simply pop to the shop and get some more. But Mary, calmly said to her son, “They have no more wine.” She knew that Jesus could and would resolve the problem, and save the day. Jesus was quite angered, he said to his mother, “Woman, that’s not our problem, my time has not come yet.” Jesus, was a human, just like you and me, but Mary just calmly told the servants, “Do as he says.” Jesus told the servants what to do, and performed his first miracle, he changed water into wine, approximately about 48 gallons of wine, that was better than the best wine that at already been served, that is truly amazing.
MARK 11:24
(I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours.)
People have faith, what ever you are going through, pray, hand the situation to God, believe, trust, and God will answer your prayer, not always exactly how you hoped, but always in a way that is best for you long-term. God uses your trials to show your faith is genuine, it’s being tested as fire test and purifies gold, removing all contamination, though your faith is far more precious than gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world. (1 PETER 1:7) We need our trials, so that God can change us, purify us, remove all contamination, all sin, so that God can make us clean, and holy on the of redemption, so give thanks for your trials, and trust God in all things, and God’s peace will be with you every single day. God bless you all. Glory be to God forever and ever. Amen.
