Jesus’ First Miracle

Wedding-Feast-at-Cana-Julius-Schnorr-von-Carosfeld

On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Now both Jesus and His disciples were invited to the wedding. And when they ran out of wine, the mother of Jesus said to Him, “They have no wine.” Jesus said to her, “Woman, what does your concern have to do with Me? My hour has not yet come.” His mother said to the servants, “Whatever He says to you, do it.” Now there were set there six waterpots of stone, according to the manner of purification of the Jews, containing twenty or thirty gallons apiece. Jesus said to them, “Fill the waterpots with water.” And they filled them up to the brim. And He said to them, “Draw some out now, and take it to the master of the feast.” And they took it. When the master of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and did not know where it came from (but the servants who had drawn the water knew), the master of the feast called the bridegroom. And he said to him, “Every man at the beginning sets out the good wine, and when the guests have well drunk, then the inferior. You have kept the good wine until now!” This beginning of signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory; and His disciples believed in Him. After this He went down to Capernaum, He, His mother, His brothers, and His disciples; and they did not stay there many days. John 2:1-12

All of Jesus’ miracles are wonderful. It is interesting to see in this story that Mary is the first wedding guest that is mentioned. Mary encouraged Jesus to do something about the situation. Perhaps Mary may have been a close relative of the bride or groom as she showed concern and asked Jesus for help. Jesus manifested His glory as He performed His first miracle! What an awesome God and provider He is! Jesus was present at the wedding and heard about their need. He commanded the servants to fill the six stone waterpots with water to the brim. He turned the water into wine! Jesus is the Son of God. He has supernatural power to do the impossible. Do you have a need today? Ask Jesus for His help.

Jesus, thank You for Your supernatural power of provision. Thank You for providing for my daily needs each day. Amen.
