Water to Wine – God's Best vs. Man's Best
This week's message is Water to Wine – God's Best vs. Man's Best. Choose your connection speed to listen: dialup - broadband - transcript
Today we take a look at the first miracle Jesus performed. It was not raising someone from the dead, or giving sight to blind eyes, or opening deaf ears. It was not casting out a legion of demons, or rising from the dead, or ascending into heaven.
Jesus' first miracle seemed trivial and of no consequence, and yet when he turned the water into wine, he summed up the Gospel, our desperate need for him, the difference between the Old and New Covenants, and the redemption of all mankind.

Our Bill Collectors Aren't Ministry Partners
Wouldn't it be wonderful if the owners of the virtual world, our ISP, our streaming media host, and all the other places who provide the goods and services necessary to continue our ministry were ministry partners and simply gave us the resources for free.
Unfortunately, they're not, and will not think twice about shutting us down. And along with losing 1/3 of our supporters over the last three months and other financial unforseables, we are being forced to make some decisions. After making an appeal during today's virtual service, several people responded with donations which brought us a good way to being out of the negative. But we still have a distance to travel, and we need your help.
We're asking that you consider becoming a ministry partner with us. Today we discussed how Jesus can turn our obedience into provision, and without that obedience, we will miss out on the level of God's glory he wants to manifest to and through us. So if you believe in our mission to reach just one more soul through the too-often overlooked venue of the online virtual world and related podcasts, and if God has allowed you to share the desire to see this ministry continue, then I ask you to make a small sacrifice and help us continue. Whatever you sow, you reap, and I know God will bless you as you sow into the harvest.
