I’ve got the be honest, I love that the first sign of belief that John records in John 2 is when Jesus turns water into wine. These guys were curious enough to follow this guy, but when they tasted the wine they were in! “This beginning of his signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory, and his disciples believed in Him.” (v.11) What was it? The taste, knowing that just moments before the water was dirty foot washing water, the abundance?
Mary had a belief in Jesus even before the disciples. She had watched him grow up, remembered the voice of God that spoke to her about who he was and she believed that he was capable of the miraculous. “Whatever He says to you, do it.” (v.5) The servants also displayed a level of belief, for they did what he said and filled the waterpots to the top. In fact, they were the first to know that Jesus’ first miracle was successful. Not even the host of the party knew where this good wine came from.
The question for us today is do we know? Do we know where the good “wine” comes from? Do we have the faith to believe that Jesus is still performing miracles today and wants to bless out lives with abundance? If we thing about it, every situation that turns south is just a party where the wine runs out. Jesus wants to provide for all who believe.
