Awhile back, the angels encouraged me to write on the Gospels on Sundays. With love and gratitude, here the Gospel of John 2:1-11 with a loving angel guided message behind it.
There was a wedding at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the wedding. When the wine ran short, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.” And Jesus said to her, “Woman, how does your concern affect me? My hour has not yet come.” His mother said to the servers, “Do whatever he tells you.” Now there were six stone water jars there for Jewish ceremonial washings, each holding twenty to thirty gallons. Jesus told them, “Fill the jars with water.” So they filled them to the brim. Then he told them, “Draw some out now and take it to the headwaiter.” So they took it. And when the headwaiter tasted the water that had become wine, without knowing where it came from — although the servers who had drawn the water knew —, the headwaiter called the bridegroom and said to him, “Everyone serves good wine first, and then when people have drunk freely, an inferior one; but you have kept the good wine until now.” Jesus did this as the beginning of his signs at Cana in Galilee and so revealed his glory, and his disciples began to believe in him.
Today’s Gospel reading shows the beginning of Jesus ‘ public ministry and another revelation of the Glory of God/Jesus.
The Mother of Jesus, who was in attendance at this wedding, along with Jesus disciples, had asked Jesus to assist the celebration of the wedding, and asked the waiters to “do whatever he tells you.” This is also an example to us that Mary is still recognized as the Mother of Jesus, who is also someone we can all go to, for her prayer to her Son, and her instruction is simple: “Do whatever he tells you.” She fully understands her Son – whereas the disciples, upon journeying with Christ , had just began to believe in him. Our journeys with Christ, should reflect the same: Believing in him and acting on his Word; as his words bring everlasting life, miracles and the True Word of God.
God’s hands makes everything perfect. The wine was superior as is all things created by God’s Hands, as God and Jesus are One.
Jesus brings us salvation, everlasting life , the new covenant, and much rejoicing in the Spirit, Goodness of the Love and Goodness of God himself.
