WATER INTO WINE
Water pouring into a challis and changing into wine is a token of Christ’s gift to humanity.
This is the first miracle performed by Jesus, bringing evidence of His ministry. It happened at a wedding in Cana of Galilee when the host ran out of wine. Word got to Mary, Jesus’ mother, that the wine had run out. Mary told the servants to do whatever Jesus told them to do.
We serve a God of wonderful acts; changing and creating, things that never were to bring glory to Himself and to bless onlookers and , seekers, and many asking for a miracle. Here we see water coming out of old stone water pots, filling a cup, and being turned into wine, the best ever.
We are called to drink of the cup of the Lord and receive life. It is His gift to man that we can have communion with the Lord and receive His fullness. We need to lift up our cup, ourselves, unto the Lord, to be filled and drink of Him. We are made beautiful, through and through from the blood of Christ. The light of His glory can shine only through us by the blood of the lamb.
Communion represents the blood of Christ which gives us life as Christ’s life is in the blood. Christ took the cup filled with wine as a token of his blood for us to drink in remembrance of His death and that we should have abundant life!
