Dear brothers and sisters,
Greetings in the Lord!
Last Sunday we had the privilege of hearing from Tad Skinner as he preached God’s word to us from John 2:1-11. We saw that the peculiar story of Jesus turning water into wine at a wedding celebration is more than just a display of Jesus’ deity. This first miracle actually pointed forward to the reason Jesus took on flesh and humbled himself to the point of death—to rescue and purify his perishing and soiled bride. Jesus transformed the water use for purification rights into wine to show that he would soon pour our his own blood to “present the church to himself in splendor…that she might be holy and without blemish (Eph. 5:27). How great the love of Christ!
If you do not feel worthy of to be the bride of the one through whom all things were created…your feelings are justified! But remember the great work this bridgegroom has accomplished on your behalf. Jesus exchanged your sin for his righteousness.You come to God in all the splendor of Christ’s perfection!
