Pastor’s Corner
May 2012
As I prepare to help with a couple weddings I
have went back to John’s Gospel and readabout Jesus performing his “first” miracle at
the wedding at Cana in Galilee. Jesus had just called the first few of his disciples tofollow after him and had been invited to awedding with them.As it goes, they run out of wine [which wouldbe a hospitality nightmare for that time] and
Jesus’ mother, Mary, tells him to get, or make,
wine. Jesus somewhat rebukes her but Marywill have nothing of it and tells some servantsto do as he says.They take 6 stone water jars [each 20-30gallons] fill them with water and then serve itto the master of the banquet. The best winehe has ever tasted! Wow, that would be 120
180 gallons of the world’s most expensive
wine!All this to say, Jesus took what was simpleand common and made somethingextraordinary out of it. Just a simple country
wedding [we don’t even know the couple’s
name] with simple, common folk and plain old
water…[without sounding to trite] add Jesus
and wha-
la…amazing wine! A miracle.
 What then can he do with your life? Withmine? If he is willing to do this just so the
couple wouldn’t be embarrassed about
running out of wine at the feast, what morewould he do in your life as you desire to followhim and spread the good news?The servants just had to follow his
instructions…I think it would behoove us to do
the same!In Christ,Pastor Matt
