Jesus turns Water into Wine

    At the beginning of His ministry in a biblical story that we are all familiar with, Jesus attended a wedding with His mother, Mary, and his disciples.

    During the wedding, the host ran out of wine, and Mary persuaded Jesus to assist and commanded the servants to do whatever Jesus asked them to do.

    Nearby, there were six stone jugs, each capable of holding approximately 20 to 30 gallons of water which, in total, equated to somewhere around 120 to 180 gallons (450 to 680 liters) of water. Jesus instructed the servants to fill the jugs to the brim.

    Turning water to wine

    He then instructed the servants to take a sample of this water that had been turned into wine and give it to the master of the feast to test.

    In verse 10 of John chapter 2, the master, after tasting the sample brought to him, exclaims, “Every man at the beginning sets out the good wine, and when the guests have well drunk, then the inferior. You have kept the good wine until now!”

    This reaction clearly indicates that the quality of the wine that Jesus created was far superior to the wine that had been supplied and served by the bridegroom.

    Jesus can change your problems

    I truly believe that this miracle performed by Jesus was not done to save the bridegroom the embarrassment of having run out of wine. I believe that, similar to the parables that Jesus often used, this miracle was also a form of a parable.

    No matter how bad your situation is, if you take it to Jesus, then He will perform a miracle with the situation and transform it into an opportunity or perhaps something far better than you had or believed could be.

    Jesus takes calamities and turns them into opportunities.

    Haggai 2 verse 9 says, “The glory of this latter temple shall be greater than the former.”

    Take your problems to Jesus and He will turn them into opportunities.
