This week in the gospel Jesus shows up at a wedding. As an invited guest, the day wasn’t about him. It was of course about the bride and groom, the guests, and the entire party celebrating the happy occasion.
He was just one of many that came out to John the Baptist. He may have mingled, but likely few knew his name. Nothing about him stood out. He wasn’t different. Jesus was just a regular guy who looked like all the rest.
The breaker tripped and the lights went out, and wouldn’t come back on. That won’t happen to the Light that shines during this time of the church year. It comes from God, sent by him, showcased in special ways, and highlighting things we need to know in order to be saved.
