In The Footsteps of Jesus
“What Jesus did here in Cana of Galilee was the first of the signs through which he revealed his glory, and his disciples believed in him.”
– John 2:11(NIV)
Come along with me to the marriage in Cana of Galilee. Let me show you the three different reports and narratives people that attended the wedding feast will have.
The first set, people that attended the feast but left before the wine ran out, they either went home without drinking wine or experienced only the regular, commonly served wine that soon ran out.
When you attend the feast, are you always in a hurry? Do you wait on God or run with ‘anything goes’?
The second set, people that were present when Jesus came around, they probably had a taste of the old and the new wine. Maybe they were already filled with the old wine and had no thirst for more or better still, drank of the old and the new wine.
Some of them definitely had the experience of a lifetime. Their narrative gives the full picture of what really happened
And the last set, those that came around after Jesus and His team had left. They definitely drank the new wine, didn’t know how it came about but will go with a testimony that goes thus. “That is the best wine have ever had in a wedding feast, ever ever”.
The definitely had a wow experience…
Now imagine a bystander asking to know what happened at the feast. His conclusion will depend on which set of the attendees he spoke with.
In life, it’s always no good to be a bystander, the partaker is the one with the experience. Always strive to be at the feast.
Secondly, make sure you encounter Jesus at the feast or follow his steps to wherever He has been, that guarantees the best experience.
Don’t hurry out of the feast that Jesus has been invited to, don’t settle for the “anything goes”, ask Jesus to intervene. Whatever you get in His presence or at His instruction is the best there is.
Jesus is at the feast, are you willing to wait on Him?
