And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: and both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage. And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come. His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it. And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece. Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it. When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom, 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 hast kept the good wine until now. This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.John 2:1-11
The first miracle of our Lord was seen by only a handful of people. We know that Mary was there, and we never forget the disciples presence because they record the miracle for us. But have we forgotten some unnamed witnesses to this blessed event?
The servants got to see the same wondrous event!
What do all of these people have in common? They were all close to Jesus. If you want to see the Lord at work, you need to be where the Lord is!
Whenever your home church is meeting, you ought to be there if it is physically possible. Whenever you have the opportunity, you should be in prayer or reading God’s word. Jesus is in all of these places. That is where the miracles happen!
We can also learn a valuable lesson from the servants in this account. We may sometimes feel that we have an insignificant role in the purpose of God. When we do, we should recall these servants. They were just faithfully going about their probably very dull (and unfavorable) occupations when Jesus showed them Who He truly is!
And not only that, He used them IN THE MIRACLE!!!
