John 2:1-2 Devotion by Stephen Taylor

John 2:1-2

On the third day, a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus' mother was there, and Jesus and His disciples had also been invited to the wedding.

 

Today, I get to marry my best friend and an amazing daughter of God Almighty! Last night, we had the rehearsal, and at some point during the night, the Holy Spirit brought this story to mind and revealed to me that just like Jesus went to that wedding in Cana, so He would also be at ours! Let me tell you, that brought so much joy, peace, hope, love, and confidence to my heart!

 

At the wedding at Cana, Jesus turned water into wine, and although I don’t think we will see that today, I can tell you what He has changed! He took a fearful boy and made him into a faithful man, He took a lost soul and made him into a reconciled child of God, He took an addicted boy and turned him into a redeemed man, He took a broken heart of stone and replaced it with a flowing heart of flesh, He took my dead existence and turned it into a life of abundance in Him! He did all this and so much more, not because of who I am but because of Who He is and His overwhelming, unmeasurable, insurmountable, all-consuming love for me! And guess what? He is waiting to do the same for you!

 

Give Him your trash, and He will give you treasure, both in this life and the next! Jesus didn’t save me because I’m a “good person” or “worthy of being saved” but because He is love and desires to reconcile even His enemies back to His Father!

 

On a day of celebration and covenant with the Lord and my future wife Bethany Leavitt, I will be holding onto this verse below because God uses this verse to remind me that He proved His love for me before I ever knew His name and that as long as you have breath in your lungs, there is hope, and hope has a name; it’s Jesus!

 

Romans 5:8 - But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

 

God bless! I love you all! Glory, Honor, and Praise now and forever to Papa God, my King Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit the Spirit of Truth!
