Allow Jesus to turn your marriage into wine!
Human effort might tell you that it may take time for your marriage to be healed, before you see results you might think that your marriage is not working out and things have gone so bad there is no way out but divorce. I know with Jesus it can be INSTANT! Let me explain. How many of you know that Jesus preformed a miracle turning the water into wine at a wedding? What did Jesus do? He compressed time. He can do in a short time what take human effort years of labor. One moment of favor can turn the whole thing around. I believe this is a sign Jesus can do quick work!
The marriage govender or the MC of the wedding feast he tasted the wine Jesus created, the bible says it was the best wine, don’t forget this guy is an expert.
Wine comes from grapes, what I understand about wine is, it takes about 2 to 3 years for a vineyard to produce good grapes (Your backyard grapevine can take up to three years to produce viable grapes, but that timeline is based on several environmental factors as well as how you care for the plant) and then n few more years to produce good wine. In fact they have to wait about 10 years for the wine to be really good. The longer you keep the wine the more expensive the value and the more tasty it seems.
What took (For example) 50 years to produce the best wine, took Jesus an instant at a wedding feast and He produced it! If you say Pastor Lydia my marriage is hell on earth, with Jesus if you allow Him to save your marriage next week with Jesus you can say it is heaven on earth. Both are true in a marriage. A bad marriage is the closest to hell you can get on earth and a good marriage is the closest to heaven you can have on earth. Again the difference is this…. Jesus!
If you try to fix your own marriage you normally have a couple of do’s and don’ts but you are left in your own human strength and energy to carry it out, this is doomed for failure. The Holy Spirit comes and preaches through His word and gives you God’s original blue print about man and woman if you see it you are transform not by your human spirit but by the Holy Spirit your part is to see the glory. Effortlessly you would change suddenly the water turns into wine.
I don’t want to give you more law but I want to point you to a God that is still a miracles God who still changes water into wine.
Male and female are different, when God made man, what happened? Ephesians 5: 22 Wife’s submit to your own husband as to the Lord. (Paul has a unique way of teaching marriages) He doesn’t have a list of do’s and don’ts. What he does is he brings Jesus in to the marriage. He doesn’t say wives submit to your husband full stop. Wives submit to your husband as to the LORD.
Husbands love your wives just as Christ loves the church; again he brings Christ into the sentence. As on to Jesus, bring Jesus into your marriage. Why does he not say wives love and husbands submit? Because it is easier for man to submit and it comes natural for a woman to love.
Before God started a government God started a family! God loves family, before God wants to bless your business, God wants to bless your family life your marriage.
The very first miracle Jesus performed was at a wedding feast, day one of your marriage. What does this mean? Jesus did a lot of miracles and He first want to bless your married life. The law was given to Moses, Grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. Moses first miracle of justice was turning the water into blood (Judgement, death) Jesus first miracle of Grace was turning water into wine (Life, Joy)
Trust God and alllow Jesus to turn your marriage into wine!
