Our First Impression
"This, the first of his miraculous signs, Jesus performed at Cana in Galilee. He thus revealed his glory, and his disciples put their faith in him." John 2:11
Scripture Focus: John 2:1-11
"You never get a second chance to make a good first impression," so the saying goes. If this is true, why did Jesus choose His first miracle to be one where He changed water into wine? Why not something more spectacular, such as giving sight to a blind man or raising the dead?
But this miracle is as spectacular as any of His others.
In the beginning, when God created the world, He made something out of nothing (Genesis 1). Since only God can create, what better way for Jesus Christ to begin His earthly ministry than by proving He is the Creator? Without grapes or grape juice, Jesus created a fine wine to be served to the wedding guests.
Not only did this miracle affirm Jesus as Creator, it's setting also pointed to His relationship with believers. Marriage is a picture of our relationship with Christ. One day, the Church will be presented to Him as His perfect bride (Revelation 19:7-8).
Jesus' first miracle revealed His glory. Today, it reminds us that He is our Creator and our Bridegroom.
Insight: What situation is causing you to doubt God's power or compassion? Rest in the assurance that your powerful Creator is also your loving Bridegroom.
