A Lack of Wine was A Major Crisis,
1. Brought shame and disgrace on the family
2. Robbed Guests of Refreshment & Rejoicing
Q What do you do when the Wine Runs Out? Get another Bottle, go to Supermarket.
Wine clearly represents the Blood of Jesus, never run out of it power in our lives
Wine is Symbolic of Blessing Gen 27;29 / Rejoicing ps 104:15 / Teaching Matt 9
What do we do when the Spiritual Wine Runs out, How long can you run on empty? Running Without Blessing / Rejoicing / Truth is impossible
Wine Ran Out because; People Consumed with the business of preparing for the Day, perhaps everything else was just right but something vital was forgotten
Vital We walk in the Blessing of God and are not too consumed by the business of Life.
We are Blessed by Birth in Jesus Ephesians 1:3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.
Blessed to be In the House that feeds us, all food is good for you, even the green stuff
Blessed to be In the Family care/love us, but some times people are grumpy/fall out/run away BUT A GOOD FAMILY STILL LOVES
My Children are Blessed to be in My house, eat my food, Gas, Electric
They Mess up and Fight sometimes but I STILL LOVE EM
When Children know there is More of what they like / they Want It
There are Keys to getting Morein God
1. OBEDIENCE, to God’s Word, Will and Ways
2. ASKING, see Jacob Gen 32, see Jabez 1Chor 4
Matthew 7:7 "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.
Don’t Settle for Just enough Wine of God’s Blessing, There is More,
Don’t get distracted & forget the most vital Blessing of God
Wine is Symbolic of Rejoicing, some think Rejoicing is a result of God Tickling US, exuberant worship time, blessing, answered prayer,
Rejoicing is a Choice, Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!
Some Chose to be a Grumpy Bum Christian only think, talk, or see how hard life is for You & No One else.
Of course times of grief, sadness for a season, not everlasting, Some are so miserable on earth I thing they could be Unhappy in heaven Cause there is No Sadness.
Chose to Rejoice…………Hab 3:17 Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls:
Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The Lord God is my strength,
Isa 61:10 I will (A)rejoice greatly in the LORD, My soul will exult in (B)my God; For He has (C)clothed me with garments of salvation, He has wrapped me with a robe of righteousness,
Wine is Symbolic of Teaching, "Neither do men pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst, the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved." (Matthew 9:17)
Jesus speaks of the new Wine, of teaching of grace, mercy, blessing, New because it is still Fermenting, still growth, maturity to come in us.
Get Truth that is not it! It needs to begin Growing in You Sanctifying You, Strengthening You, Stretching you in Faith we need New Skins, to grow with the New Wine
You are Vessels Fit to carry New Wine You were Once a Crack Pot, Now New Creation, New Wine Skin, Man Made Fit for Service, to receive new wine
He Chose You
Are you a Just Enough Christian or are you an Overflowing Christian
ILL When you go to a buffet do think eat as much as you can or eat as much as you like. Its oK to be greed for the things of God
Better to Spill the blessing of God out of your life than live for the next spiritual Thrill………
