PASTOR’S MESSAGEJohn 2:1-12   – Jesus performs his first sign at a wedding feast in Cana.

Jesus is told that they have not enough wine at the feast & Jesus performs His first miracle by changing water into wine.  In John’s Gospel, he never speaks of these signs as miracles because their importance is not in the deed that Jesus performs, but in what these deeds indicate about Jesus’ identity.    This response to a simple human need is a vision for us of the abundance of God’s love & generosity that He is willing to lavish us with as He promises us to share in His Kingdom.  It challenges us to respond generously when confronted with human need today.  We respond as best we can, fully confident that God will transform our efforts, while opening the eyes of others and encouraging them to do the same.
