A good friend of mine gave me this advice “There is no second chance at making a first impression.” This is so true. In our world today, the thing that people remember the most about you is the first impression that they had experienced. You have to spend the rest of your relationship trying to change their opinion of you that they took from the first time they met you. This might be one of the hardest things to do in life.
In John 2, we are introduced to this story of Jesus attending a wedding at Cana. John informs us that after a while they ran out of wine. Jesus’ mother comes up to Him and tells Him to do something about it. Jesus tells the servants to fill up six jars with water, draw some of it out, and bring it to the master of the wedding. When they do this, the reaction of the master is astonishing. This is what he says “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.” (See vs. 10)
I believe this first miracle of Jesus shows us the character of God. With people everyone always puts forth their best foot first, but with God the best is always yet to come. You may be thinking to yourself “How can things get any better?” or “Are things ever going to get better?” Believe me they will because God always saves His best for last.
- What does this passage teach us about God? How does it apply to you?
- Are you having trouble believing that God has greater things in store for you?
- Is there anything in your life that may be holding you back from God’s best? Is there something God is telling you to do in order that He may pour out the best He has for you in your life?
