Next week's readings: 2nd Sunday after Ephipany

The message of Christ’s first miracle tells us something about Jesus’ power, his ability and his control over all things.  Up to this point in his ministry Jesus had not done anything that demonstrated he was the all-powerful God!  The wedding at Cana was the first of thousands of miracles Jesus performed in his ministry and it sent the message that he is the Almighty God, he is all-powerful, can do all things well and was an indication of bigger things to come.

 

Another important message it sends is about Jesus attitude towards us.  We are always grateful for that person who senses we need a helping hand, a listening ear, a word of comfort, even a piece of friendly advice- asked for or not.  He wanted to send the message that he is compassionate!  He cares even about the little things in our lives and if he cares about the little things, he certainly cares about the big things- the struggles we face.

 

And what does that mean for us?  Ultimately, the message of Christ’s first miracle is that Jesus is trustworthy.  He did not have to turn the water into wine but, because he did, we now know he uses his almighty power to show us compassion in life.  We can trust him in that!

 

Blessings, Rev Helen
