Encounter With Jesus-Water Into Wine

August 26th, 2015

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Connection, today’s encounter with Jesus examines when Jesus turned water into wine.

It happened at the festive occasion of a wedding. The very fact that Jesus shows up at a wedding reflects his nature to celebrate with those who are celebrating that which God blesses.

But there was a problem. They ran out of wine. Jesus had the servants fill jars with water. By the time they drew it out, the water had turned into wine.

The master of the banquet 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.”

The account of Jesus turning water into wine reminds us that while life does have its moments of joy here on earth, the best is yet to come for those who follow Him. He saves the best for last. He will fill us with joy in His presence, with eternal pleasures at His right hand. Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!

A daily connection with Christ leads us to joyful celebration in His abiding Presence.
