..a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there, and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding.
– John 2:1-2 (NIV)

Isn’t it interesting to note that the fate of humanity is hanging in the balance, and Jesus is whipping up some choice of wine at a wedding party?
Well, the first item on God’s agenda after creating the world in the Old Testament was also a wedding, Eve and Adam.
So it’s no surprise that the New Testament miracles also started at a marriage ceremony.
Jesus cares about every detail of our lives including our relationships. Do you know why Jesus was there? “Now both Jesus and His disciples were invited to the wedding.” (John 2:2)
Jesus was invited. If you know only one thing about Jesus, know this: He will come into any situation where He is invited.
Is He invited into your home too? There is a song we used to sing while growing up, but I am not sure it’s so common again. It goes thus;
‘With Jesus in the family,
Happy Happy Home’ ‘
With Jesus in the family,
Happy Happy Home’‘
Happy Happy Home!’
If you feel like Jesus isn’t involved in your relationship or marriage, maybe your invite is not clear and direct enough— He won’t just party crash. You have not because you ask not. — James 4:2
If you feel overwhelmed or pressured by the demand of a marriage relationship, then you need to specially invite Jesus. He is never too busy, it’s never too late with Him.
Ask Him into your children’s life, family finance, and love life, and give Him no restrictions. Invite Him to any and every area of your relationship.
No matter the state of your marriage, daily invite Jesus Christ to your home. Make Him the Lord and King in your home and let everyone and everything be subject to His authority.
LET US PRAY:
Dear Lord Jesus Christ, I invite you into my love life and family affairs. I ask you to be the leader in my relationship.
Mold and shape all my relationships into your pattern. I ask that you bring my family into our divine purpose and full restoration of all blessings.
May your joy and Spirit strengthen my home.
In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
