Today’s Bible reading is John chapter 2
(Read the entire New Testament in 2014 by reading only one chapter each day)
Marriages are made in heaven but on earth Jesus graced a wedding with His presence in Cana of Galilee. It is interesting that Jesus’ first miracle took place at a wedding. He turned water into wine. Wine is a symbol of joy. Jesus brings joy into the home or into the human heart. For there to be joy in a marriage Christ must be there. Unless the Lord builds the house they who labor do so in vain. It isn’t just hard to build a home without Christ it is impossible. Once a man said to me, “It’s okay for me to drink, after all Jesus turned the water into wine. I responded “so do you do everything Jesus tells you to do?” Alcohol can destroy a marriage and is one of the leading causes for divorce. God said, “Be not drunk with wine… but be filled with the Spirit.” There is no greater experience than to be filled with God’s Spirit. It is a miracle of God’s grace! Just like Jesus turned water into wine He can turn your life into something beautiful.
Prayer: ” Dear Lord, please fill us with the fullness of Your Presence, and the fullness of Your joy. In Jesus name. Amen.”
