Most everyone has lost someone they loved. When we lose a person that was a part of our lives, everything changes. We come to the point where we realize that nothing will ever be the same again. We will never talk to them again. We will never go to a ballgame or a play or a concert with that person again in this life. We come to accept that everything is changing.
These kinds of events happened in Jesus’ life as well. One day, at a wedding feast in Cana, it became clear that everything was about to change for Jesus. it would affect his mother, Mary, and all of those that knew or followed Jesus. In fact, Jesus was about to inaugurate HIs ministry with a miracle that would point the way toward the cross and start many down the path of believing in Him.
The Apostle John continues to show us in his gospel exactly who Jesus is. The miracle at Cana reveals to us the start of Jesus ministry and eventually where this road would lead our Lord. John’s purpose was that we would have a hunger and thirst for Jesus, that we would believe, and that we would have the life that Christ wants for each of us. Are you praying for each of these things in your own life?
