John 2:1-11

Pastor Hutchins started his sermon by saying… “It does not matter how big the mess is in your life, if you let Jesus handle it, He can turn that mess into a miracle.”…

In this particular part of scripture we find Jesus hanging out at a wedding with His disciples and His mother. The central issue at the wedding is that the groom and his family have run out of wine and hence the tension in the text.  The fact that they ran out of wine suggests there was a breach of contract on the groom’s end.  The groom was expected to demonstrate his ability to take care and or provide for his bride by ensuring the party had enough wine.

Jesus was a guest at the wedding and His mother said to Him, “They have no more wine”.  Here lies the issue in the text.  I’m sure the groom did all he could do to ensure he would have enough wine for the party, but yet he still came up short.  Pastor Hutchins helps the people of God to see that sometimes we can plan to do everything we are supposed to, and still come up short.

Jesus is pulled into an issue He had nothing to do with yet, He still steps up and shows up to meet the need.  Pastor Hutchins helps us to see that even though Jesus was not ready for it, God was ready for Him.  Every now and then, God will create a situation in your life that will expose what God has put in you and how much He has anointed you.  The bigger the problem, the greater the anointing. 

As Pastor Hutchins closed out this sermon, he reminds us that God can use anybody in any condition. As a matter of fact, in this text we see that God can use contaminated things. When you really think about it, if God didn’t use contaminated people, who would He use because the Bible declares that there is none righteous, no not one. I’m so glad that we serve a God that is able to turn our mess into a miracle, and a mighty message for the kingdom of God.  God accepts us in our contaminated state, fills us to the brim with His Holy Spirit and turns us into a miracle that can be a blessing to others in the party called life.  I thank God that He was able to use the thirty gallon tanks as is.  Jesus didn’t say go clean out the tank first but rather just obey and watch Me transform the situation.  Only God can take our mess and turn it into a miracle…
