During this time of limits – e.g. one package of toilet paper per customer, public gatherings limited to 25% of building capacity — we encounter amazing abundance. Jesus fills six water jars to the brim with the best wine. And imagine: each holds 20 – 30 gallons!
The amount itself is extraordinary, but the very best wine? And, at this point in the wedding celebration? Usually by this time Boone’s Farm is served, not Rombauer Chardonnay.
Turning water into wine is revealing abundant grace in a lean season of life. And what does abundant grace “taste” like? Like the best wine when you are expecting the cheap stuff. It’s one thing to say, “Jesus is the source of grace.” It’s quite another to have an experience of it.
Have you had the ordinary turned into the extraordinary by the Lord? Where have you experienced this kind of grace?
Jesus’ first miracle was not at a prayer meeting, but a party. A good party is a sign of the Kingdom of God.
YOU ARE THE EXTRAORDINARY IN MY OTHERWISE ORDINARY LIFE. THANKS BE TO GOD!
