Reading: John 2:8-10
Then he told them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet.” They did so,  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  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.”
Thought: Water into wine, what a miracle! I’ve heard it said that thee church sometimes performs the reverse miracle of turning Jesus’ wine into water… Jesus is about celebration, fun and the best; life in all its fullness. Let us not let the cynicism of modern life drag us down but instead let’s lift it up through our imitation of him as the Spirit inspires and leads us.
Prayer: Give us the gift of joy in you and teach us to celebrate!
