Jesus' First Miracle

Did you know that Jesus' first miracle was at a wedding? That's right. Look it up.

All right. I'll make it easy for you. Read John 2:1-11. As I flip through the gospel accounts, it appears that John is the only apostle who recorded this significant event.

I think it's sweet that Jesus chose to display His authority and power at a wedding. What a reassurance to me as I stood at the kitchen sink one morning three months ago worrying about whether we would have enough food at Steph's wedding. The Holy Spirit reminded me through Jesus's first miracle that the Lord cares about the special moments in our lives, especially weddings, since He uses the picture of the marriage relationship to show how He loves us!

Over and over again in planning Steph and Matt's outdoor wedding, the Lord answered prayer, right down to the weather. Even as I decorated the white gazebo in a light shower of rain on their wedding morning, I pressed forward in faith. The Lord had promised He'd come through for us, and He did! What a gorgeous day it turned out to be and the moderate temperature was a delight.

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Matthew Brantham Kramm
