John
2:1-11:

1 And
the third
day
there

was a
marriag
e in
Cana of

Galilee;
and the
mother
of Jesus

was
there:
2 And
both

Jesus
was
called,
and his

disciple
s, to the
marriag
e.

3 And
when
they
wanted

wine,
the
mother
of Jesus

saith
unto
him,
They

have no
wine.
4 Jesus
saith

unto
her,
Woman,
what

have I to
do with
thee?
mine

hour is
not yet
come.

5 His
mother
saith
unto the

servants
,
Whatso
ever he

saith
unto
you, do
it.

6 And
there
were set
there six

waterpo
ts of
stone,
after the

manner
of the
purifyin
g of the

Jews,
containi
ng two
or three

firkins
apiece.
7 Jesus
saith

unto
them,
Fill the
waterpo

ts with
water.
And
they

filled
them up
to the
brim.

8 And
he saith
unto
them,

Draw
out now,
and
bear

unto the
governo
r of the
feast.

And
they
bare it.

9 When
the ruler
of the
feast

had
tasted
the
water

that was
made
wine,
and

knew
not
whence
it was:

(but the
servants
which
drew the

water
knew;)
the
governo

r of the
feast
called
the

bridegro
om,
10 And
saith

unto
him,
Every
man at

the
beginni
ng doth
set forth

good
wine;
and
when

men
have
well
drunk,

then
that
which is
worse:

but thou
hast
kept the
good

wine
until
now.

11 This
beginni
ng of
miracles

did
Jesus in
Cana of
Galilee,

and
manifest
ed forth
his

glory;
and his
disciple
s

believed
on him.
-----

Today, I
am
continui
ng the

daily
Just
Jesus
Evangeli

stic
Campaig
n
sermon

series,
which is
aimed at
sharing

the
Gospel
of the
Lord

Jesus
Christ
with
unbeliev

ers and
remindin
g
Christia

ns, in
this
importa
nt

election
year, to
keep the
main

thing the
main
thing -and that

is
reaching
unbeliev
ers with

the
Gospel
of the
Lord

Jesus
Christ
and
praying

for their
salvatio
n, for
the

problem
in
America
is not

only
disobedi
ent
presiden

ts and
politicia
ns but
disobedi

ent
pastors,
preacher
s, and

parishio
ners
who
have

refused
to obey
Gods
Great

Commis
sion and
who
have

refused
to obey
Gods
repeated

comman
ds to
pray
without

ceasing
for
unbeliev
ers,

believer
s, and
political
leaders.

This
campaig
n is
inspired

by the
followin
g three
verses:

1
Corinthi
ans 2:2
which

says,
"For I
determin
ed not to

know
anything
among
you,

save
Jesus
Christ,
and him

crucified
." Acts
5:42
which

says,
"And
daily in
the

temple,
and in
every
house,

they
ceased
not to
teach

and
preach
Jesus
Christ."

And 2
Timothy
2:4
which

says,
No man
that
warreth

entangle
th
himself
with the

affairs of
this life;
that he
may

please
him who
hath
chosen

him to
be a
soldier.

This
series is
not for
Christia

ns
necessa
rily.
However

, I do
hope
you are
one of

those
saints
who still
loves to

hear the
Old, old
story of
Jesus

and His
love -As the
hymn

says,
For
those
who

know it
best
Seem
hungeri

ng and
thirsting
to hear it
like the

rest.
This
series is
primarily

for
unbeliev
ers, so
they can

hear and
understa
nd the
Gospel

and be
saved
from sin
and the

punishm
ent of
sin
which is

hell.
This is
messag
e

number
16.
John
Calvin

said,
"Christ,
declarin
g openly

in an
assembl
y by a
notable

miracle
that he
has
power

over the
nature
of things
to feed

man's
body,
leads
the

minds of
all men
to
consider

his
spiritual
and
saving

strength
and
power."

Christen
a
Clevelan
d said,

"Rather
than
using
his

power to
distance
himself
from us,

Jesus
uses it
to
approac

h us. He
follows
his own
comman

dment to
love
your
neighbo

r as
yourself
often
to his

detrimen
t, I might
addby
pursuin

g us
with
great
tenacity

in spite
of our
differenc
es. He

jumps a
lot of
hurdles

to reach
us."
Jesus'
first

recorde
d
miracle
is

perhaps
a mostsurprisi
ng one.

We
would
think,
surely,

that the
Son of
God
would

make
the first
public
demonst

ration of
His
power
on a

much
larger,
more
visible

stage.
And
certainly
, He

would
do
somethi
ng more

audacio
us than
quietly
transfor

ming
jars full
of water
into

wine.
But this
entire
scenario

tells us
some
very
interesti

ng and
very
importa
nt things

about
Jesus
Christ,
His

mission
on earth,
how He
chose to

carry it
out, and
the
people

who
witnesse
d Him
carrying

out His
mission.
By the
way,

many
Christia
ns have
been in

shock
down
through
the

centurie
s that
the first
miracle

that
their
blessed
Saviour

Jesus
Christ
did was
make

wine.
Some
still
have not

gotten
over it.
And yes
this was

fermente
d real
wine, for
they

could
have
made
grape

juice in
the back
yard.
Fine

wine
takes
time and
therein

lies the
miracle.
I believe
that

Jesus
did this
on
purpose

to rattle
all of the
proud
Pharisee

ical
religious
stuffshir
ts down

through
the ages
and to
let

people
know
that yes
He is all

about
people
trusting
Him,

obeying
Him, and
living a
holy life,

but He is
also
very
much

about
the party
and
having a

good
time. So
let me
say

once
and for
all to all
unbeliev

ers and
sinners
who
have

been
afraid to
get
saved

because
you
didnt
want to

give up
your
wine
which

you
drink in
moderati
on with

your
meal or
on
special

occasio
ns like a
wedding
, you

can get
saved
today
and still

drink
your
wine in
moderati

on for
the glory
of God.
Dont let

that
keep
you
from

being
saved
from sin
and hell

and
enjoying
an
abundan

t life in
heaven
as well.

Believe
on the
Lord
Jesus

Christ
and thou
shalt be
saved.

Now
with that
said I
want

you to
notice
with me
that

Jesus is
intereste
d in
every

aspect
of our
lives.
Our

passage
reads,
"And the
third day

there
was a
marriage
in Cana

of
Galilee;
and the
mother

of Jesus
was
there:
And

both
Jesus
was
called,

and his
disciple
s, to the
marriage

." Now,
wedding
s for the
Jews

were
different
affairs
than

what we
call a
wedding
today. A

wedding
in the
Bible
was a

seven
day-long
celebrati
on with

feasting,
dancing,
drinking
wine,

giftgiving,
and
well-

wishing.
Surely,
Jesus
had

more
importa
nt things
to do

than to
spend
seven
days at

a
wedding
party.
Yet, this

is
exactly
where
we find

Jesus.
This
tells us
that

Jesus is
very
much
intereste

d in
every
aspect
of our

lives -even the


parts
that

seem
nonspiritual.
It is not

so much
that God
is
intereste

d in a
wedding
, but He
is

intereste
d in the
two
people

whom
He has
created
who

have
now
decided
to

pledge
themsel
ves to
each

other till
death do
them
part.

The NFL
Playoffs
are
going on

now.
And in
football,
many

players,
when
they
score a

touchdo
wn or
when
their

team
wins a
game,
give

thanks
and
glory to
God.

Every
now and
then, the
question

comes
up,
"Does
God

care
about
football?
Does

God
care
which
teams

win or
lose?"
Green
Bay

Packers
Quarterb
ack
Aaron

Rodgers
was
asked
this

question
on a
radio
show

sometim
e ago. I
think he
gave the

right
answer
when he
said that

God
does not
care
about

football,
but He
cares
about

the
people
playing

the
game.
It is the
same

with
every
aspect
of our

lives.
God
cares
about

His
creation,
in
whateve

r stage
we are
at in life,
and that

is what
we see
in Jesus
making

it His
busines
s to be
at this

wedding
party.
This
care for

His
creation
is also
shown

in Jesus'
willingn
ess to
use His

power to
turn
water
into

wine. It
also
shows
us that

God is a
God of
joy and
He loves

to see
his
children
enjoying

the life
He has
given
them.

You see,
running
out of
wine

was a
big nono at a
week-

long
wedding
party. If
that had

happene
d, the
young
couple

who had
just
gotten
married

would
have
been
extremel

y
embarra
ssed.
They

would
have
been the
butt of

jokes. It
would
have
been on

the front
page of
the
tabloids

and at
the top
of the
gossip

columns
. The
husband
and wife

would
have
never
been

able to
live
down
the fact

that they
had run
out of
wine at

their
wedding
party.

But,
thankfull
y, Jesus
is there,

and He
transfor
ms the
water

into
wine -not just
mediocr

e wine,
but as
we see
in our

passage
, the
best
wine.

Jesus
saves
the
wedding

party
from
certain
disaster.

Some
say that
God's
rules

stop
people
from
having

fun. But
the truth
is,
unless

we abide
within
the
bounds

God has
set for
us, we
will

never
have
true fun.

Dear
friend,
God is
not your

enemy.
He made
you, He
loves

you, and
He is
concern
ed about

every
part of
your life.
However

, He also
knows
that
apart

from
Himself,
you will
never be

complet
ely
happy,
satisfied

, or
fulfilled.
That is
why He

sent
Jesus
Christ to
this

earth -so that


you can
get to

know
Him
through
acceptin

g Jesus
Christ
as your
Savior

from sin
and
sins

consequ
ences.
Are you
willing

to trust
Jesus
Christ
as your

Savior
today? If
so, here
is how.

First,
accept
the fact
that you

are a
sinner,
and that
you

have
broken
Gods
law. The

Bible
says in
Romans
3:23:

"For all
have
sinned
and

come
short of
the glory
of God.

Second,
accept
the fact
that

there is
a
penalty
for sin.

The
Bible
states in
Romans

6:23:
"For the
wages

of sin is
death
Third,
accept

the fact
that you
are on
the road

to hell.
Jesus
Christ
said in

Matthew
10:28:
"And
fear not

them
which
kill the
body,

but are
not able
to kill
the soul:

but
rather
fear him
which is

able to
destroy
both
soul and

body in
hell."
Also, the
Bible

states in
Revelati
on 21:8:
"But the

fearful,
and
unbeliev
ing, and

the
abomina
ble, and
murdere

rs, and
whorem
ongers
and

sorcerer
s, and
idolaters
, and all

liars,
shall
have
their

part in
the lake
which
burneth

with fire
and
brimsto
ne:

which is
the
second
death.

Now that
is bad
news,
but

heres
the good
news.
Jesus

Christ
said in
John
3:16:

"For
God so
loved
the

world,
that he
gave his
only

begotten
Son,
that
whosoe

ver
believet
h in him
should

not
perish,
but have
everlasti

ng life."
Just
believe
in your

heart
that
Jesus
Christ

died for
your
sins,
was

buried,
and rose
from the
dead by

the
power of
God for
you so

that you
can live
eternally
with

Him.
Pray and
ask Him
to come

into
your
heart
today,

and He
will.
Romans
10:9 &

13 says,
That if
thou
shalt

confess
with thy
mouth
the Lord

Jesus,
and
shalt
believe

in thine
heart
that God
hath

raised
him
from the
dead,

thou
shalt be
saved
For

whosoe
ver shall
call
upon the

name of
the Lord
shall be
saved."

If you
believe
that
Jesus

Christ
died on
the
cross

for your
sins,
was
buried,

and rose
from the
dead,
and you

want to
trust
Him for
your

salvatio
n today,
please
pray

with me
this
simple
prayer:

Holy
Father
God, I
realize

that I am
a sinner
and that
I have

done
some
bad
things in

my life. I
am sorry
for my
sins,

and
today I
choose
to turn

from my
sins. For
Jesus
Christ

sake,
please
forgive
me of

my sins.
I believe
with all
of my

heart
that
Jesus
Christ

died for
me, was
buried,
and rose

again. I
trust
Jesus
Christ

as my
Savior
and I
choose

to follow
Him as
Lord
from

this day
forward.
Lord
Jesus,

please
come
into my
heart

and
save my
soul and
change

my life
today.
Amen.

If you
just
trusted
Jesus

Christ
as your
Saviour,
and you

prayed
that
prayer
and

meant it
from
your
heart, I

declare
to you
that
based

upon the
Word of
God,
you are

now
saved
from
Hell and

you are
on your
way to
Heaven.

Welcom
e to the
family of
God!
