John 2:1-11

Introduction:

In this passage, we encounter a Christ who cares, and who carry’s through for His own! Today, let’s drop in on the wedding scene in Cana of Galilee and witness Jesus Christ – The Son of Man.

I. Jesus Christ’s Involvement in the Events of Our Life:
John 2:1-2

A. The circumstances surrounding Christ’s involvement (v.1)  A Wedding at Cana of Galilee
B. The invitation surrounding Christ’s involvement (v.2)
C. The selflessness surrounding Christ’s involvement (v.2)

II. Jesus Christ’s Power in the Events of Our Life: John 2:3-9

A. The problem generating the need for Christ’s power  (v.3a, “And when they ran out of wine”)
B. The steps taken assuring the certainty of Christ’s power  (vv.3b-5)

1. Run to Jesus (vv.3-4) –
2. Follow Jesus’ command(s) (v.5) –

III. Jesus Christ’s Provision in the Events of Our Life:
John 2:10-11

A. Christ provides for our physical need(s) – He gave them  just what they needed in their immediate circumstance  cf. Phil. 4:19
