I just started leading a live conversation on Monday nights. Here's the one from last night about learning how to love change. Check it out, and don't miss our next conversation LIVE Mondays at 8:30PM (PST) on Facebook.
A man’s child was dying. He was desperate, and he knew that only one person could possibly save his son. The father traveled 16 miles by foot, and found Jesus in the little town of Cana in Galillee. He begged Jesus to heal his son, and Jesus did. Jesus spoke, “Your son lives,” and at exactly that hour the boy was healed. This is the second sign Jesus performed.
Following Jesus isn't about Law. It's about love. It's about living dedicated to a love that carries us forward. Living grateful for the love that redeems us. It's about living inspired, and compelled to extend the love and grace extended to us by Jesus.
They were having a joyous celebration, but to the Joneses with a baby that couldn't sleep through explosions, it was annoying. It’s funny how one person’s celebration can be really annoying for someone else, especially if they don’t understand the reason for the party.
Jesus was making a habit of having celebrations with all of the wrong people. And in all three stories, Jesus was trying to explain the reason for celebration. He wanted everyone to know just how joyous the occasion was.
