Grace at Cana

It has been said that, “The great Christian revolutions come not by the discovery of something that was not known before. They happen when somebody takes radically something that was always there.”  This can be applied this week as we are going to study the much discussed concept of “Grace” as depicted by the Miracle at the Wedding at Cana in John 2:1-11.

I hope you will join me in prayer as we prepare our hearts in advance for the sermon this Sunday.  I also suggest that you read our passage in advance.  As you do consider the following questions:

  • Why did Jesus choose to perform His first miracle at the Wedding at Cana?
  • In what ways did this miracle “manifest His glory?”

As we study the passage on Sunday, we will examine six different attributes about grace that are seen in this story….yes, you have to come to hear the attributes J.

I am especially grateful for the grace of God after hearing that my Grandpa Campbell passed away today at 11:30am.  Though we are saddened to lose him, we are very excited for him, knowing that he is in a much better place.

The Apostle Paul writes comforting words in 2 Corinthians 5:1-9 “For we know that if the tent, which is our earthly home, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.  For in this tent we groan, longing to put on our heavenly dwelling, if indeed by putting it on we may not be found naked. For while we are still in this tent, we groan, being burdened––not that we would be unclothed, but that we would be further clothed, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who has given us the Spirit as a guarantee. So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight. Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord.  So whether we are at home or away, we make it our aim to please him.”

Blessings!
