Summary: Do we have an incubator aiding the growth of negative emotions? Their wedding was going to make them the laughing stock of Cana. But Jesus was there and the best was yet to come. Look at the potential of the seed.
THE BEST IS YET TO COME…
By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com
ARE WE THE LAUGHING STOCK OF DOOM AND FAILURE? CAN WE HONESTLY DECLARE: THE BEST IS YET TO COME? OR HAVE WE ALLOWED OUR HEARTS TO BECOME HARDENED TO THE POINT THAT LIFE IS QUE SERA, SERA --- WHAT WILL BE WILL BE… THE FURTURE IS NOT OURS TO SEE, QUE SERA, SERA?
Let us sing the anthem of the modern reality: Gloom, despair, agony on end? Deep dark depression, excessive misery? If it weren’t for bad luck, I’ve no luck at all? Gloom, despair and agony on me…
Our hopes and dreams have been dashed. It’s over, the fat lady has already sang her song and sat down. We are forever trapped? Nothing will ever change? There is nothing new under the sun?
John 2:1 And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: 2 And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage. 3 And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine.
We are so embarrassed, the Governor has honored us with his presence at our wedding. Look at this big crowd? We never dreamed this big? Our little dream is dashed, there is no hope? WOW, we will be the laughing stock of the city?
THERE IS ONE POSITIVE POINT TO BE MADE IN ALL THIS MESS, AT LEAST WE INVITED JESUS TO COME… NOW, WE ARE HOPELESS IN FRONT OF THE GOVERNOR AND THE SON OF GOD…
THE BEST IS YET TO COME… THIS WEDDING WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBER AS THE BEST IS COMING…
EVEN THE GOVERNOR IS IMPRESSED.
Today may look really bad. The problems are beyond our abilities to fix.
I could eat a worm, crawl in a hole and die?
AIN’T NO WAY --- NO GOOD CAN COME OUT OF THIS?
THIS PROBLEM IS NOT FIXABLE, WE DON’T HAVE THE MONEY? THE STORE IS CLOSED?
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
WAIT, JESUS IS HERE, LISTEN TO WHAT EVER HE HAS TO SAY: JUST DO IT?
John 2:5 His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.
HOW WILL 150 GALLONS OF WATER FIX THIS MESS?
JUST DO IT --- MAYBE? MAYBE THE BEST IS YET TO COME?
John 2:8 And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it. 9 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, 10 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. 11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.
MY FRIEND, WHEN WE OBEY JESUS’ COMMANDS AND TRUST THE PLAN… THE BEST IS YET TO COME…
THE GOVERNOR IS IMPRESSED? WHY?
WHY THE BEST IS YET TO COME? WE OBEYED… EVERYONE KNOWS THE GOOD OF OUR WEDDING?
GRANDSONS, LET’S TALK ABOUT THIS, JESUS’ FIRST MIRACLE WAS AT OUR WEDDING IN CANA.
EXPLAIN TO ME THE DIFFERENCE IN BURYING AND PLANTING?
CAN WE HONESTLY SEE THE VALUE OF SEEDS? BEFORE THERE IS FRUIT, WE MUST FIND THE VALUE OF THE SEED.
John 12:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.
I hold in my hand several seeds? I hold up an acorn? Who has the prophetic ability to project years down the road and tell me what could this acorn become?
Pig food? Deer food? Vs A MIGHTY OAK TREE? What will make the difference between pig food or a MIGHTY OAK?
Effort? Time? Patience? Care?
Do we have the ability to see that SICKLY OAKS FROM SICKLY ACORNS GROW? Can we see: ALL THE MIGHTY OAK IS? A NUT THAT STOOD ITS GROUND?
John 12:24 (MSG) "Listen carefully: Unless a grain of wheat is buried in the ground, dead to the world, it is never any more than a grain of wheat. But if it is buried, it sprouts and reproduces itself many times over.
DO NOT EAT THE SEED CORN! THE BEST IS YET TO COME!
There were 7 in my family. In the spring Dad would plow the place for the garden. This dirt became very important for the family. We would fertilize the ground, plant seeds, water the ground when needed. We spent many hours in the garden. The plants would grow. We would hoe and loosen the ground. A good gardener has to do more than love plants, you must hate the weeds. The weeds will limit the harvest if you allow them to grow?
