Will Jesus Be There When You Need Him
Is Jesus present in your life? When times get difficult and yo're in need of a miracle will Jesus be there for you? Will you be able to turn to Him when you need him most? The Bible tells the story of a great wedding party. In fact, the party was so big they literally ran out of wine. Desperate for help the host turned to Jesus who performed His first miracle. Graciously, He turned water into wine and the party continued.
It Started With An Invitation
It's easy to focus on the miracle but let's look at what preceded it.
John 2:1-2 says, "
Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me." Jesus is looking for an invitation into your life. He wants to be with you. He wants to be at your party. Quite simply, He wants to be your provision and turn your water into wine. Jesus wants to bring joy into your life and the first step is to invite Him in.
Jesus is waiting to come into your life. You may have messed things up but He already paid the penalty for your mistakes. That's what the gospel is all about. It's the good news that He paid the penalty for your screw ups and you're now free to invite Him into your life. All that's required on your part is to trust the payment that He made, invite Him to lead your life and start following His lead. Without the invitation there is no miracle. The invitation changes everything.
