Finally, consider the Wedding at Cana, in which Christ turned ceremonial washing water into wine. It is no coincidence that He chose this sacred event, a wedding, to bring us into His fold. Reading John 2:1-12, we cannot help but feel like treasured guests witnessing what our Lord and Savior has in store for us. He who is the best wine saved for last, the blood covenant which becomes the one sacrifice that replaces the many, makes Himself known at a wedding.
The vocation of a Christian marriage is one intended to be lived with a spirit of service, love, endurance and commitment as witnessed by Christ our bridegroom.
