7 Jesus said to the servants, ‘Fill the jars with water’; so they filled them to the brim.8 Then he told them, ‘Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet.’ They did so, 9 and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside 10 and said, ‘Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now.’
I was reading about this passage from John 2:7-10 this morning that said “people look everywhere but to God for excitement and meaning. For some reason they expect God to be dull and lifeless. Just as the wine Jesus made was the best, so life in him is better than life on our own.”
I had a pretty good life before I decided to follow Jesus. Oh, trust me, it wasn’t perfect by any means, but no MAJOR issues. I don’t have the dramatic lifestory that so many people do. But I really couldn’t put my finger on what was missing. Until I watched a woman that made me long for what she had – what sparkled in her. What showed in her countenance. You can read about her in My Spiritual Story here.
Jesus transforms a flat, tasteless life into one that is sparkling and flavorful. He continues to turn water into wine.
