Jesus is the creator of luxury.
Can you picture Jesus drinking a bottle of Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon? What if he created 180 gallons of Screaming Eagle at a wedding party? Depending on the wine bottle size it can be tens of millions to hundreds of millions of dollars.
Wait a minute, I thought Christians don’t drink alcohol. How can Jesus create wine, a very good wine, out of water if his followers teach others not to drink wine? Are we missing something?
We conclude a four part message “Wedding, Woman, Water and Wine” tomorrow to learn that Jesus is the creator of luxury:
On the third day there was a wedding at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Jesus also was invited to the wedding with his disciples. When the wine ran out, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.” And Jesus said to her, “Woman, what does this have to do with me? My hour has not yet come.” His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.” Now there were six stone water jars there for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding twenty or thirty gallons. Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water.” And they filled them up to the brim. And he said to them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the feast.” So they took it. When the master of the feast tasted the water now become wine, and did not know where it came from (though the servants who had drawn the water knew), the master of the feast called the bridegroom and said to him, “Everyone serves the good wine first, and when people have drunk freely, then the poor wine. But you have kept the good wine until now.” This, the first of his signs, Jesus did at Cana in Galilee, and manifested his glory. And his disciples believed in him. After this he went down to Capernaum, with his mother and his brothers and his disciples, and they stayed there for a few days.
