Thursday: Jesus and Romance — 4 Comments

  1. There are two things I see in the miracle at Cana. First is the unmistakable stamp of approval of the festivities that took place there. Second is the last sentence of the text for the lesson, "This beginning of signs Jesus did in Cana of Galilee, and manifested His glory; and His disciples believed in Him" (John 2:11 NKJV). So this was a faith builder for His disciples.

    Jesus didn't approve of gluttony and riotous party making but He did approve of the innocent, joyous occasions such as this. As a people we need to understand that God never meant life to be boring and depressive, that is what the devil wants it to be. On the other hand, there are proper limits. We are not to do as the world does in promiscuous drunken revelry.

    • Perhaps Jesus was not a “wet blanket” when it came to parties and potlucks. That seems to disagree with what the Bible says others that attended those parties perceived about him. Jesus himself acknowledged what others were saying.

      “The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and you say, ‘Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.’” Luke 7:34, NIV

      While this passage is no doubt an exaggeration, I think that Jesus was probably not an ascetic. These charges might make no sense, otherwise. I think he might have enjoyed a good meal and a party celebration as much as the next man. Perhaps our views of Jesus may be overly influenced by our Puritan denominational heritage.

  2. I think that there are three things that God give to live by they are life, the ten commandments and marriage.

  3. I do not understand the example that the writer refers to, about Jesus, Jesus did not come to have fun but he came as a plan of salvation, if anyone can explain to me the relevence of Jesus's example.
