Will You Invite Jesus?
In John chapter two, we read about the story of water changed into wine, the first public miracle Jesus performed.
In those days, weddings lasted for days, perhaps weeks. They served wine at the wedding feasts. It was the custom to serve the best wine first, then the cheaper wine later. On the third day of this particular wedding, they ran out of wine.
His mother Mary told Jesus about this embarrassing situation. He told her it was not his time to start doing miracles. But he told the servants to fill six large jars with water. He dipped into one of the barrels, filled a cup, and told someone to take it to the master of ceremonies. The master tasted it and took the bridegroom aside.
He told him it was the best wine he ever tasted and impressed because he saved the best for last. The bridegroom got the credit for the miracle that Jesus did. It saved him from social scorn and showed him to be a man of substance.
Jesus was there because they invited him. He created a miracle because he was there. He can perform miracles in your life, if you invite him. He is waiting but will not enter without an invitation. Won’t you invite him today?
