Unlimited: God is Interested in You
Apr 9, 2018 1068
The story of the wedding at Cana tells us that God is interested in us. Jesus did not work this miracle in a great public display at the temple at Jerusalem, but at the home of an unknown family. We are not even told the names of the bride and the bridegroom. They lived in a tiny village, not even in Judea, but in Galilee where there were some Jews, but mainly Gentiles.
Jesus begins his ministry with a great sign that tells us that he has come to transform everything. He does it for an unknown couple, peasants in a small village. The story is meant to tell us that God is very interested in ordinary people. Abraham Lincoln was right when he said, “God must have loved the common people: he made so many of them.
What does the miracle mean? God is interested in you. Here is a beautiful verse: “Casting all your care upon him” (1 Peter 5:7). Notice what it says: “all”.
I wish this could be done once and then last forever. Usually I have to cast my care upon God again and again. But you can trust God that he cares for you. He cares for the common people. God changes what is plain in your life into something special. Only God can change your water into wine. – Des Ford
Eli’s Reflection: What “water” do you have in your life that you would like God to turn into “wine”? Make it a special focus of your prayers this week. Remember: God cares for you!
