John 2:1-11

Something to work with

     You can’t make a cake without flour, as many a granny used to say. It’s a fact of life on this revolving world that nothing can be created “from thin air”. You have to start with the basic ingredients whether you’re baking a cake or building an ocean liner. And the Christian life is no different. Even in faith, nothing comes from nothing.

     Consider the miracle at the wedding in Cana. Jesus could have made the wine appear in empty jars. But instead the Messiah asked the stewards to fill the jars with water first. Why? Free will. God wants children that joyously run to Him, not robots who mindlessly trudge forward. So He won’t forcibly fill up our hearts with the wine of faith. He will patiently wait for us to fill those empty vessels with the water of repentance and invitation. Then and only then will He turn that simple water into something miraculous. If you’re waiting for a miracle or a renewal of faith in your life today, ask yourself this: Have I given the Master something to work with?
