Scripture: John 2:1-12
1On the third day there was a marriage at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there; 2Jesus also was invited to the marriage, with his disciples. 3When the wine failed, the mother of Jesus said to him, "They have no wine." 4And Jesus said to her, "O woman, what have you to do with me? My hour has not yet come." 5His mother said to the servants, "Do whatever he tells you." 6 Now six stone jars were standing there, for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding twenty or thirty gallons. 7Jesus said to them, "Fill the jars with water." And they filled them up to the brim. 8He said to them, "Now draw some out, and take it to the steward of the feast." So they took it. 9When the steward 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 steward of the feast called the bridegroom 10and said to him, "Every man serves the good wine first; and when men have drunk freely, then the poor wine; but you have kept the good wine until now." 11This, the first of his signs, Jesus did at Cana in Galilee, and manifested his glory; and his disciples believed in him. 12After this he went down to Caper'na-um, with his mother and his brothers and his disciples; and there they stayed for a few days.
Meditation on Today's Scripture:
This miracle indicates the "new rich wine" of the Gospel and it points to the “wine of the new covenant” and the “bread of life” which Jesus offers for his disciples in the Lord’s Supper or Eucharist. It also points to the Messianic banquet which Jesus will give at the end of the age when he comes again in his glory. The miracles of Jesus reveal the power of God's love and mercy for his people. God's kindness knows no limits. And the final expression of his love is revealed in the person of his Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. He became flesh for our sake, and he died for our salvation, and he rose that we, too, might be raised up and glorified with him. Do we thirst for God and forthe plentiful life and blessings he offers to you? Heavenly Father, you have revealed your glory in our Jesus our Lord. Fill us with your Holy Spirit that we may bring you glory in all that I do and say.
