Taken from a message given by Adrian Rogers
And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: And both Jesus was called, and His disciples, to the marriage. And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto them, They have no wine.” John 2:1-3
The first recorded miracle Jesus performed was at a wedding. The wine had run out, and the Lord Jesus Christ, at the request of His mother, moved in to take care of the embarrassing situation. He told the servants to fill six available water pots with water. Then, He turned the water into wine — but not ordinary wine, the very best.
But this was not just a miracle. It was a miracle with a message. You see, Jesus was the Messiah of Israel, but they didn’t recognize Him. In John 1:26 John the Baptist said about Jesus, “… There standeth One among you, Whom ye know not.” They should have known Him, could have known Him, ought to have known Him: but they didn’t. And because they didn’t know Him, they didn’t understand this miracle. We’ll look at three lessons from this first miracle.
