John 2:11 (NIVUK)
What Jesus did here in Cana of Galilee was the first of the signs through which he revealed his glory; and his disciples believed in him.

What is the glory that John speaks of here? His ‘secret’ identity? His transforming mission bringing something better than the Law and its ceremonial washing? His love of those in trouble? Or is he looking back to the hint laid out at the beginning with the use of the poignant phrase ‘the third day’?

Lord, help me to reflect on this sign and what you are saying to us through it. Help us to be alert to signs of the Divine throughout the day.
