Here Comes the Bride
On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there…When the wine was gone, Jesus’ mother said to him, “They have no more wine.” John 2:1 – 3
Let’s talk! Have you ever noticed the only people who ever call on God are people to whom God has already come and in whom He has already put a hunger for Himself? A person becomes a Christian not because of anything noble in themself, but because they are crowded and pushed into it by the Holy Spirit. When God comes and begins to move on a human spirit, He begins to put a hunger within — an aspiration. He creates a desire to be different, to be a better person. Our dreaming soul begins to long for holiness and righteousness; we begin to imagine what God wants us to be. In place of a life of inner apathy comes a spark of interest in ultimate reality and the dream of a new life.
God periodically allows problems in your life and mine. Remember the wedding at Cana? Nobody noticed Jesus until they had a problem and the wine ran out. There were many weddings over the years in Cana that never had a miracle. The only wedding in which a miracle occurred was the one where Christ was present and the people recognized their need of Him and allowed Him to do what only He could to do for them.
I wonder if you and I are guilty of only noticing Jesus when.....? You might be at one of those “WHEN” spots right now. Go on........you know what to do!
