Re:Verse reading–John 2:1-22 (day six)
Jesus was no party crasher. He knew better. The day was for the bride and groom; it wasn’t his time to take center stage. What he chose to do instead was subtle, quiet, but deliberate: he turned water into the best wine at the party, and no one was the wiser. Save Mary, his new gaggle of disciples, and a handful of servants (maybe even the bridegroom), they knew what he did, and they marveled. That was the point after all, to manifest his glory to the disciples so they would see and believe, while cleverly pointing to the day he would take center stage (the cross).
A thousand times they retold that wedding story, and others after them. And John wrote it down. Why? So we could see what he saw that day at the wedding, and believe.
