Day 1 – The Wedding Banquet

And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine, and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse; but thou has kept the good wine until now– St. John 2:10

Today, while sitting in my car during lunch, I read across this verse in the bible. Located in the New Testament, within the first few verses in the 2nd chapter of John, (1 of the 4 Gospels, that tells of the life of Christ).. I began to ponder and think on the meaning..

Then it clicked.

In this world, we are often over-taken and self absorbed into the care of this life. We allow almost anything and everything to over take us. New experiences, New clothes, new cars, new careers, new adventures, chores, etc. We become so in tuned to our life, and the cares, and joys around us that the “boring or bad” stuff doesn’t seem to phase us when it comes our way. In fact, we usually don’t even notice the difference in such, (unless, it’s traumatic or catastrophic, that’s different, and doesn’t go with my explanation). Like with the bad wine being brought out at the end when everyone is drunk, the little differences, or mundane things go unnoticed, because the joys and drunkenness of life have us consumed by the time they come..

The governor of the feast, noticed the taste of the good wine, even though the men were drunk. That Good wine had a different taste, it had a pure taste, a taste so delicate that it stood out no matter how drunken and consumed the wedding guest was.

You see, that’s how it is with Jesus too, and the Holy Ghost, and Salvation. It’s different. Its pure, its delightful, and it stands out. Even if you think you have had all that you can have, you can always consume more, and the taste is always refreshing.

How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth! -Psalm 119:103

 O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him. Psalm 34:8

No matter how consumed we are with this world, when we begin to taste the anointed word of God, we can tell the difference. Its taste is distinguished among the rest. – That anointed word of God has power, and its punch is undeniable, you’ll either attempt to run from it, or you’ll towards it, or both, you may run from and the run back to it. — Either way, like the good wine, at the wedding, you’ll know it apart from the rest. And you’ll be forever changed by it, and in most cases, always left wanting it.

I’m not sure who this was mean for, maybe just for me, but I felt compelled to share it.

I love you all, & Jesus loves you Most!
