Now six stone water jars had been set there for Jewish purification. Each contained 20 or 30 gallons. “Fill the jars with water.” Jesu told them. So they filled them to the brim. Then He said to them, “Now draw some out and take it to the chief servant.” and they did. When the chief servant tasted the water (after it had become wine), he did not know where it came from – though the servants who had drawn the water knew. He called the groom and told him, “Everyone sets out the fine wine first, then, after people have drunk freely, the inferior. But you have kept the fine wine until now.” John 2:6-10 HCSB
As a child I played in a golf tournament. As an incentive to win the match, my father promised to give me a Titleist golf ball. Some would say that a golf ball is a golf ball but I beg to differ. When I am able to play with a better golf ball (I prefer Titleist), there is a difference. The ball comes off of the club better and there is a better feel. Even on the green when putting the ball has a better feel. Cheap golf balls can be purchased for $10 per dozen, but better balls cost approximately $45 per dozen. I always enjoy playing with the best golf balls.
When Jesus turned the water into wine He could have turned it into the cheaper wine, but Jesus never did anything less than the best. He turned the water into the finest wine available. Anything Jesus does is always with a spirit of excellence. He touched the blind and lame and made them whole again. He forgave sinners and provided them with new purpose and meaning for living. He is still touching lives and making the best out of the ordinary.
Challenge: Just as the water Jesus turned to wine was the best, with Jesus’ touch on your life you can be the best. He can take the worst life of a sinner and transform it into the best it can be. With Jesus’ Master touch all things are excellent.
