Water He Turned into Wine


7 Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water.” And they filled them up to the brim. 8 And then he said to them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the feast.” So they took it. 9 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

– John 2:7-9 ESV

 

I want to call attention to the part “(though the servants who had drawn the water knew)”. Many times we will meet people and they will “not know where it came from”. It being our faith, or generosity, our love for others, or some good quality Jesus gives to us. We the “servants” know where it came from and can humbly thank God for it. Those people who see our qualities will often wonder why they don’t have them and how we got them. They do “not know”. But we do. This can become an avenue for us to share our faith with them, emphasizing our sinfulness and then emphasizing Jesus’ holiness and goodness that He gives to us.

About Hudson

I live in Indiana. I enjoyed playing soccer all four years of high school. I co-captained and won the MVP award my senior year. I also have created many film projects, the most extensive of which won a film festival award for Best Cinematography during my senior year. It is a 10-minute short film called Café Encounter and can be watched on YouTube. I have been actively involved in my youth group and am a leader for a middle school boys group on Sunday mornings. I was also blessed to go on two mission trips to Belize and Ecuador respectively. Belize really awakened my faith in Christ and pushed me towards active obedience and love for God. Ecuador gave me a life-changing perspective on missionary work and has helped me to view myself as a missionary in my every day life, but especially with the intent of being a missionary to my work industry.
