The Best Invitation

Inviting Jesus Christ to come in to a situation is the best thing anyone can do. In Cana of Galilee Jesus was invited to a wedding and when things began to go bad, he stepped in. That wedding is like any life event with all its disappointments, but with Christ things change.

What happened when they ran out of wine? In John 2:3 the Bible says, “And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine” (KJV‬‬). In other words, Mary “prayed” and she did it by telling Jesus that the wedding had run out of wine. She prayed because she knew Jesus would do something about it. The situation was going to turn into a disaster, but Jesus willingly changed things to the glory of God. Jesus is also willing to change things in your life.

When Jesus has been invited in your life, he becomes a present help in time of need. At the wedding in Cana he turned water into wine. The same Jesus is doing the same thing in your life. Some issues you are dealing with right now require God’s touch for you to experience change. Jesus is an expert at life issues and he will turn things around for you.

Without Jesus, the wedding at Cana of Galilee could have been disappointing. Plan “B” for weddings was usually done by resorting to offering poor wine. The same thing could have happened at this wedding, but Jesus intervened. It was a well known fact that other weddings offered the worst wine at some point during the event, but at this wedding the best wine was made available because Jesus stepped in to help. Is there something you know is upsetting your life circumstances? Jesus is the answer.

Now, all you have to do is to follow what God tells you to do. In verse five of the same chapter the Bible says, “His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it” (KJV).‬‬ Mary was setting up a situation in which Jesus would help meet the need at hand. In other words, if you want God to work in your life, do not just invite Jesus into your situation; be willing to do what he tells you to do. This is the invitation that will offers the best of opportunities for your life.
