What we see this morning from our text: 1. Jesus Christ is a sovereign Savior. 2. Saving faith is created by God not responded to by God. 3. There is such a thing as false faith.
From our text this morning I want you to see three ways that the Lord Jesus, by cleansing the Temple, set in motion the events that would lead ultimately to His crucifixion. 1. By cleansing the Temple He publicly displayed His messianic authority. 2. By cleansing the Temple He fulfilled the Scripture. 3. By cleansing the Temple He prophesied of His coming glory.
What I would like to do this morning is pose three questions about verse 11 and answer them from our text this morning so that we can understand the significance of this first miracle. Let me give you these three questions. Verse 11 says this was the first of His signs. So: 1. Why did God intend this miracle to be the first sign? Verse 11 says this miracle manifested Christ's glory. So: 2. How did turning water into wine manifest His glory? Verse 11 says that His disciples believed in Him as a result of this miracle. So: 3. What about this miracle made them believe?
I want you to see three reasons that we like Philip can tell people to come and see. First we need to see that: 1. The Lord Jesus knows everything about the people that we bring to Him. 2. The Lord Jesus knows what the people we bring need to hear. 3. The Lord Jesus knows what spiritual truths need to be revealed to the people that we bring to Him. All three of these will point to the biblical fact that the Lord is sovereign over those who are brought to Him and those who will believe. There may be guessing on our part but there will be none on the Lord’s part.
