The Best is Right Now

John 2:1-11 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 him, They have no wine. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come. His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.  And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece. Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it.  When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,  And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.  This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.

The first miracle of Jesus is a short, simple story with infinite, complex meaning. Christ turned a failure into success, by turning plain water into delicious wine, fit for a wedding. Mary, His mother, knew the Lord had the capacity to reverse the situation. Had she seen Him perform other miracles? Or did she know in her mother's heart that her Son was stepping into His destiny?

A wedding is meant to be a once-in-a-lifetime event. Two couples in our small church are getting married in June. This little congregation is bursting with joy!

We wish the best for these new families and ask for God's best blessings on their future. They have so many things to look forward to, but first, let's savor this sacred day. Our Father wants us to fully live each moment of our lives; to really enjoy the moment.

With Christ, the best is always right now.

"A man can no more take in a supply of grace for the future than he can eat enough for the next six months, or take sufficient air into his lungs at one time to sustain life for a week. We must draw upon God's boundless store of grace from day to day as we need it."--Dwight L. Moody
