Come to the Wedding Party
"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.'" John 2:9-10
Scripture Focus: John 2:1-11
Can you imagine the joy of having Jesus at your party? The master of the banquet in this story probably did not realize the One who created the very vines and fruit that made the wine was right there in his midst. Jesus was concerned about a detail like running out of wine at a wedding. He was and is Lord over all!
It's a lot easier to say with written words that we are a part of a greater party for Jesus than it is to live that out in reality. It seems that each day brings new worries, letdowns, injustices and emergencies...not exactly the stuff of parties. Yet this is where He meets us. Into our world of heartaches, Jesus comes near. He carries us through life's agonies so that we know His mercy and grace. Jesus may have provided wine at the wedding that day, but His greater providence was of His own shed blood so that all of us who believe would know the true celebration of life in Him. Don't miss the picture of what the Water into Wine miracle showed, and don't miss your invitation to the party!
Insight: Having blessed us, Jesus invites us to His party. We are part of His family and thus covered by His love and grace.
