On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there, and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. When the wine was gone, Jesus’ mother said to him, “They have no more wine.” “Woman, why do you involve me?” Jesus replied. “My hour has not yet come.” His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.” Nearby stood six stone water jars, the kind used by the Jews for ceremonial washing, each holding from twenty to thirty gallons. Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water”; so they filled them to the brim. Then he told them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the banquet.” They did so, and the master of the banquet tasted the water that had been turned into wine. He did not realize where it had come from, though the servants who had drawn the water knew. Then he called the bridegroom aside and said, “Everyone brings out the choice wine first and then the cheaper wine after the guests have had too much to drink; but you have saved the best till now.”
John 2:1-10 (NIV)
This miracle did not happen on the grounds of the mother – son sentiment. No, not at all. We all can learn a great lesson through this incident and know how to provoke a miracle when we recognize and reverence the anointing resident in a person present. The anointing on Christ was stirred up at the tomb of Lazarus when Jesus saw the people weeping. The power of God is always present in different occasions for different purposes. It is our responsibility to recognize it, yield to it and utilize it for the need it is meant for.
