In John 2, the writer tells us about a wedding feast in Cana of Galilee. Mary, Jesus’ mother attended and brought Jesus and the boys.
You know the story – if not check it out here.
One of the striking statements in this story comes from the head waiter.
… “Every man serves the good wine first, and when the people have drunk freely, then he serves the poorer wine; but you have kept the good wine until now.” – John 2:10
I’ve heard this interpreted a bunch of different ways, but today the Lord put in my heart a simple idea.
From the beginning of creation, God wanted companionship from us.
Isaiah tells us
“For your husband is your Maker, Whose name is the LORD of hosts; And your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel, Who is called the God of all the earth. – Isaiah 54:5
So God gave the law to Moses and invited Israel to be His people, His bride. But the law was inferior wine. God invited folks to a wedding, but there was no joy. The bride couldn’t keep her garments clean and the whole thing went bust.
The law was inferior wine.
For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, – Romans 8:3
So God took water and turned it into the best wine.
God through His Spirit, put His seed into the womb of a woman and filled a human water pot with a new kind of wine. Wine filled with the Spirit of God. He put His own Son into flesh and blood man and brought joy unspeakable to the wedding feast of the ages.
Anyway–just a thought.
Have a great week.
Walk in the BLESSING.
