The first miracle sign Jesus performed was at the wedding feast in Cana. Changing water to wine is a sign of the lavish lifestyle that Jesus offers to all who will drink life from Him, and also symbolizes the cleansing power of the blood of Jesus Christ.

Parenting changes as our children grow up. Younger children need a directive parenting style. As children approach adolescence, parents transition to the role of coach and mentor.

What would be the reflection of the essence of Jesus? Jesus' miracle of turning water into wine shows us His creative power. This is how God works in our lives.
