Bathwater into Wine (March 27, 2011)

“Without wine” said the Rabbis, “there is no joy”.  Hospitality in the east was a sacred duty as it is to this day, and it would have been humiliating for the bride and groom to run out.  For many people, life feels just like that.  The wine has dried up...and that’s where John 2: 1-11 comes in, because on the third day of Jesus’ public ministry, at a wedding feast in Cana, we learn what we need when the wine of life begins to run dry: (i) intercessors who will go with us and for us to Jesus; (ii) fellow servants who will help us follow His directions (iii); witnesses to encourage us when they see the first signs of new life (9-10); (iv) and a believing heart when Jesus’ glory is revealed to us.  Click this link to download.
