In the story of the wedding at Cana, we see Jesus’ first recorded miracle as He turns water into wine. It’s an account that demonstrates not only Jesus’ divine power but also the faith and trust of Mary, Jesus’ mother. When the wine runs out at the wedding, Mary turns to Jesus for help, confident that He can provide a solution.
This passage serves as a reminder of the importance of faith and trust in Jesus. Mary’s faith was strong enough to believe that Jesus could remedy the situation, even though He had not yet performed any public miracles. Her confidence in Jesus is a model for us, showing how we can turn to Jesus in our times of need, trusting that He will provide for us.

Reflecting on John 2:3, consider these points in applying the lessons of faith and trust in our own lives:
- Cultivate a strong relationship with Jesus through prayer, Bible study, and fellowship, allowing your faith to grow and deepen.
- In times of need or crisis, turn to Jesus first, trusting in His power and wisdom to provide a solution.
- Recognize that God’s ways and timing may be different from ours, and be willing to submit to His will and plan.
- Share your testimony of God’s faithfulness in your life with others, encouraging them to put their trust in Jesus as well.
