John 2:2-12 (NLT)
2 The next day there was a wedding celebration in the village of Cana in Galilee. Jesus� mother was there, 2 and Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the celebration. 3 The wine supply ran out during the festivities, so Jesus� mother told him, �They have no more wine.� 4 �Dear woman, that�s not our problem,� Jesus replied. �My time has not yet come.� 5 But his mother told the servants, �Do whatever he tells you.� 6 Standing nearby were six stone water jars, used for Jewish ceremonial washing. Each could hold twenty to thirty gallons. 7 Jesus told the servants, �Fill the jars with water.� When the jars had been filled, 8 he said, �Now dip some out, and take it to the master of ceremonies.� So the servants followed his instructions. 9 When the master of ceremonies tasted the water that was now wine, not knowing where it had come from (though, of course, the servants knew), he called the bridegroom over. 10 �A host always serves the best wine first,� he said. �Then, when everyone has had a lot to drink, he brings out the less expensive wine. But you have kept the best until now!� 11 This miraculous sign at Cana in Galilee was the first time Jesus revealed his glory. And his disciples believed in him. 12 After the wedding he went to Capernaum for a few days with his mother, his brothers, and his disciples.
These verses record the first miracle Jesus performed turning water into wine. What a fitting occasion to do so since a wedding is often used to describe the union between Jesus and the church. Not only did Jesus provide the wine, He provided the best wine. When God answer�s our calls He does so with much more that we planned or anticipated.
My wife and I love the show Everyone Loves Raymond. It�s one of the best shows for seeing the dysfunctions of family life. In an episode where Robert and Amy were getting married, Robbie�s father, Frank, was upset they were charging for the alcoholic beverages. His statement was, "And the broad's family is supposed to pay for the wedding and it is to be a full bar, free of charge with top shelf hooch. Read your Bibles!" Frank used the verses above just a little out of context, but he was trying to make a point.
When you quote the Bible are you trying to use it for your own purpose or for what God intended. God�s word is living and breathing; meaning it speaks differently at different times to different people. I have posted a Bible verse before and got back multiple responses of how that verse meant something to the person who read it. What was unique is everyone had something different to say about how the verse affected them. Let God�s word speak into your heart and find what God is trying to say to you.
