“(No longer drink only water, but use a little wine for the sake of your stomach and your frequent ailments.)”
1 Timothy 5:23 ESV
The first miracle that Jesus performed was turning ordinary water into the finest wine at a wedding. We are all just “ordinary water” that only He can transform into our finest state. Clearly there is lots of symbolism in this story, but I like to think how glorious it will be to dine with our Savior and enjoy tasting His perfect wine. Last night as we celebrated the marriage of our friends and shared some fine wine, I envisioned my departed family and friends toasting us in Paradise. Some claim that Benjamin Franklin said, “I know that God loves me because He created wine.” Whether he said this or not, I believe the concept is valid—He loves us and wants us to be happy.
