A man was wearing a new gold watch he received as a birthday present. While visiting a busy park, he bumped into another person. Only a few seconds passed before he noticed that his watch was missing. He turned to see the pickpocket running away. As loud as he could, he yelled, “AU, that is not your watch”
Hope you enjoyed the chemistry pun!
On a serious note, why is gold so valuable?
When you read the stories of the Bible and gold is mentioned, it means that the stuff made of gold is important. It has high quality. Perhaps it is the best that it can be.
It also represents royalty. Kings and queens wear gold, not commoners.
Jesus was at the wedding in Cana because he had an invite. His ministry, and by extension his power, was not known yet.
But we know more of Jesus because of what our Bibles tell us. Jesus is also the King of Kings. That means he gets to wear a crown.
A crown made of gold. The best kind of crown there is.
Another name for Jesus is Messiah. This mean that he is ‘the anointed one’, the Christ, the Savior.
When you invite the Messiah, he brings meaning into your life.
The ordinary wedding in Cana turned into a magnificent display of the power of God.
Jesus, the Messiah, brought purpose and meaning to that place.
He can do the same for you and I.
If you have read any of my blogs, you know that I typically will use alliteration. I think it helps to remember stuff. So, with that thought in mind, here is a preview of the next two posts:
The Messiah can bring meaning through miracles.
The Messiah can use the mundane to work miracles.
But for now, just know that inviting Jesus is the best idea. He is worth more than gold. There is always value when Jesus shows up.
