June 23, 2013 : WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN THE WINE RUNS OUT?

 

Dr.  Burnie R.  Burnside

 

John 2:1 -11

 

The first miracle of Jesus Christ, our Lord, took place at a wedding in Cana of Galilee.  The groom's family was expected to provide all the refreshments for the festivities. Suddenly, they discovered that they didn't have enough wine. So Jesus' mother came to Jesus.  The fact that she came to Jesus demonstrates that she expected Jesus to do something to help. Now, what does this first sign have to do with us today?

 

This Sign Informs Us That the Wine Can Run Out (vv. 2-3)


Spiritual Lesson:  Life without Christ is life without joy (wine).

 

Symbolically, the wine runs out when the joy and exhilaration of life have gone.

 

When the Wine Runs Out, Jesus Can Change the Water into the Wine of Joy (v. 5)


The miracle was a sign intended to convey truth that Jesus is the Giver of abundant joy.

 

Humans can fill water jars but only God can turn water into wine.


Humans do the ordinary, the commonplace - but when God touches our life miracles of transformation happen.

 

The miracle was a sign intended to convey truth that Christ is able to miraculously transform life.

 

God is not going to take your life and just sort of touch it up a little.

 

Our hearts, like that water, have to be completely changed into another nature.

 

When the Wine Runs Out, the Best New Wine Is Still to Come (vv 8-10).

 

Grace means that you get more than you need.

 

With the Lord, the best is always yet to come.

 

When we experience and grow in the grace of God, we discover that every new day with Jesus is sweeter than the one before!
