DAILY READINGS: Ex. 1-2:22; Psalm 31:1-24; Matt. 27:45-66
…you have kept the good wine until now. John 2:10
The best wine served at the marriage of Cana was that which Jesus had made. How significant that turning water into wine was the Lord’s first miracle. It was a miracle associated with the coming of joy. A world terribly short of joy ought to consider such a miracle worker, because He is still doing it today. To those who come to Him for true, lasting joy, He gives the joy of sins forgiven; the joy of peace with God; the joy of communion with Him. This is joy far better than any wine this earth can provide. —E. MacLelland
Pleasures of earth, so seemingly sweet, Fail at the last my longings to
meet; Only in Thee my bliss is complete, Only, dear Lord, in Thee!
—T. O. Chisholm
