John 2:1-11 recounts the events at the wedding in Cana, where Jesus performed His first of many miracles—turning the water into wine. What I have always loved about this story is the near insignificance of this miracle. If you think about it, in the grand scheme of things, running out of wine at a wedding is not all that “important.” But I imagine that it was of great importance to the bride and groom. And how special and significant they must have felt to be on the receiving end of Jesus’s first miracle.
I don’t think it’s any accident that God chose John to share this account. He was, after all, the “disciple that Jesus loved.” And while the Gospel of John is most known for highlighting Jesus’s deity, I also see a distinct focus on how relational Christ was and still is. We can approach Him with our concerns, no matter how big or small they may be. Our prayer requests may seem silly or petty to us, but they aren’t to God. He keeps track of every hair on our heads, every thought on our minds, and every desire in our hearts.
Therefore, let us boldly approach the throne. He hears, He cares, and He answers. Praise God.
