John 2:1-12 We Have Seen His Glory
The Wedding at Cana in John chapter 2 is a wonderful story. But is it simply a nice story where Jesus demonstrates His ability to perform a miracle and provide a nice gift for newlyweds, or is it more?
At this wedding, Jesus “manifested his glory. And his disciples believed in him.” Does reading this story inspire you to see Jesus in all His glory? Does it strengthen your faith in Him? John records what happened at this wedding, and he records it in a specific way, so that we will see Jesus as the glorious Savior who fulfills all the promises of the Old Testament and brings us true righteousness. We need to pray that God will enable us to see Jesus as His disciples saw Him on that day.
Join us in preparing for Sunday by reading John 2:1-12.
For His Glory and your joy,
