purified in waiting

Reading a beautiful passage in scripture recently, I noticed the word “purification”. A wedding was taking place, the wine ran out, but only the servants seem to know about the problem. Jesus has the servants fill these stone purification jars with water. What was empty, used for ritual, became filled with ordinary. When the water was drawn out, it had been turned to the best wine. The master of the feast even asked questions.

Maybe you feel a bit empty and ordinary too. Could it be that we are going through purification? In the process, we reach a point of empty and we bring our need to Jesus. He serves us living water day after day, filling us over time. And then one day, what is in your heart is drawn out and shared. My prayer for us is that the wine is so fine and pure that others begin to ask questions.
