Miracle Monday

Happy Miracle Monday everyone!

This morning I wanted to highlight the very first miracle Jesus performed in the Bible. It occurred when he turned water into wine at the wedding in Cana.

This miracle allowed Jesus' disciples to see firsthand his power and if they had any doubts that he was the true Messiah, they were erased.

John 2

1On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus' mother was there,

2and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding.

3When the wine was gone, Jesus' mother said to him, "They have no more wine."

4"Dear woman, why do you involve me?" Jesus replied, "My time has not yet come."

5His mother said to the servants, "Do whatever he tells you."

6Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons.

7Jesus said to the servants, "Fill the jars with water"; so they filled them to the brim.

8Then he told them, "Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet." They did so,

9and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside

10and said, "Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now."

11This, the first of his miraculous signs

This was the first miracle Jesus performed on earth, but it certainly wasn't the last!

Please share a miracle Jesus has worked in your life so that if others have doubts that Jesus is the one true God, they will be erased.

Thanks for the miracles. Always very uplifting on Monday morning when it's a miracle that I can drag myself out of bed.

What a blessing to have found your blog! I am making a recipe from the "A Year of Crock Potting" blog, and as I was scanning comments I saw yours. I'm a Beth, too, so I thought I'd check out your blog on a lark. Very cool to see that you are a believer too and to read your "Miracle Monday" post; I've been needing to be reminded lately that God still works miracles.
