Read John 2 – Like a groom inviting his bride to join him in life, Jesus invites us to join him in miracles.
Jesus’s first recorded miracle is the turning of water into wine. It’s a miracle and he could have accomplished it any number of ways, but he invites the servants into it. He tells them to fill the jars with water, draw some out and present it to the master of ceremonies. The servants got to join Jesus in this miracle, though I doubt they had an inkling as to what was going on. Likewise, you are invited to join Jesus in wonderful things you may not understand this side of heaven.
Next, Jesus clears the temple. The temple had become a place for profit, when it should be a place of sacrifice and worship. We see righteous anger here. This was something foul in the temple and Jesus cleared it out. In Jewish custom, before passover the house is cleaned so not a speck of dust remained – the dust being symbolic of leaven, and leaven being symbolic of sin.
Invite Jesus to reveal anything in your life that is in need of cleaning so you are free to join him with a pure heart.💗
