Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 21

21. Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used for ceremonial washing (John 2:6).
Ordinary water jars, and yet they become the means by which Jesus “manufactures” the finest wine. This is how God works. He takes the ordinary and makes it extraordinary. God does not require that we prove our specialness, but He is fully attuned to our limitations, and yet He doesn’t turn from us. This is the first of His miracles–not that He turns water to wine, but that He turns what is common, familiar, and seemingly lacking in beauty and makes something remarkable of it.
