We'd love for you to use this short devotional to review this week's story with your kids.
Background: In this week’s story we learned that Jesus attended a wedding in Cana with his mother. When the wedding ran out of wine. Jesus’ mother said, “They have no wine.” Jesus responds by saying, “What does it have to do with me? My time has not yet come.” Jesus then commands the servants to grab very big jars and fill them with water and then to serve some to the master of the feast. The master of the feast’s cup is full of wine. To everyones amazement the water had been turned into wine and every one celebrated. The new wine represents the new life that Jesus gives us.
Opening/Ice Breaker: What is a miracles? What was so amazing about the miracle in the story? Why did Jesus perform miracles? Jesus performed miracles to glorify God and prove He is God the Son.
