John 2:11 What Jesus did here in Cana of Galilee was the first of the signs through which he revealed his glory; and his disciples believed in him.
What Jesus “did here” was change some water at a wedding into wine. It is a neat trick but I’m not sure if that was all we knew of Jesus we would see it as revealing his glory. As a piece of a larger story it becomes the first glimpse into something glorious for John. By itself, it’s a curiosity that probably doesn’t even become part of history. As we think of Dr. King this weekend, we know that he became the focus of a movement. Many people did individual acts that contributed to the cause, but MLK did several things over many years and that is why we remember him. Jesus’ life, death, resurrection and ascension were what was glorious. Changing some water into wine was a sign of something more to come. This week, where will you get a glimpse of the greater glory of God?
