”Now there were set there six waterpots of stone, according to the manner of purification of the Jews, containing twenty or thirty gallons apiece. Jesus said to them, “Fill the waterpots with water.” And they filled them up to the brim. And He said to them, “Draw some out now, and take it to the master of the feast.” And they took it.”
-Jesus performed His first miracle at the weeding at Cana of Galilee when they ran out of wine. In the Jewish tradition, weddings were & are still performed for a whole week up-to date. According to manner of Jewish purification, six jars of water were used for washing hands & feet in religious places, one jar each day & on the sabbath day they were considered clean. After seeing that they had no more wine, Mary mother of Jesus requested Him to intervene with perfect knowledge that Jesus had power to perform any miracle. Jesus said “My hour has not yet come”, which probably meant time for His death, resurrection & afterwards sending the Helper to us. He instructed them to fill the jars with water & the water instantly changed to wine. We often refer water to the word of God Who is Christ & wine to the Holy Spirit. This event was therefore a foresight of Jesus’ death, resurrection & sending us the Holy Spirit to dwell in our hearts.
Jesus our Saviour we love You & magnify Your holy name. You did not leave us orphan but sent the Holy Spirit to dwell in us that we may receive help all the time & be filled with His fruit & gifts, we thank You Lord. You provided new wine for the newly weds at the wedding of Cana for You are full of mercy Lord, provide new wine in our lives & make us new wine skins to contain newness of life that You always bestow unto us. Lord be the foundation of all families, relationships & marriages, that strife, hatred, separation, divorce may not occur for the glory of Your name. Many have spread hatred & turned violent against their own families even coming to the point of killing their loved ones, Lord have mercy on us & on the whole world. Others have separated in marriage, Father have mercy & reunite them in perfect unity by Your grace according to Your will. Many others are single & yet to engage in marriage, be merciful Oh Lord & give us the best spouses according to Your merciful love. You are lifted on high Lord, we sing Your praises & exult You everyday. Amen
