PLEASE PRAY for a personal closeness to God. At a time when we, as individuals and as a Nation, need Him to provide, protect and bring us back to glory, let us strive to live closely with Him.
READ THE GOOD NEWS – John 2.1-11
‘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.’ As this was the first of many miracles Jesus performed, it is similar to the first miracle He performs in our own lives – that moment of salvation where we believe in Him, accepting His love, forgiveness and grace. But although that is the first, there is a continuous flow of
miracles that Jesus has to offer us throughout or lives and daily walk with Him.
