Monday, April 18 / May 1, 2006: Acts 3:19-26, John 2:1-11
- passage: Acts 3:19-3:26
Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out,
when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.
And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: Whom
the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things,
which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the
world began. For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall
the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me;
him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.
And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that
prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people. Yea, and all the
prophets from Samuel and those that follow after, as many as have
spoken, have likewise foretold of these days. Ye are the children
of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers,
saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth
be blessed. Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent
him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.
passage: John 2:1-2:11
And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the
mother of Jesus was there: And both Jesus was called, and his disciples,
to the marriage. And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith
unto him, They have no wine. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have
I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come. His mother saith unto
the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it. And there were set
there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the
Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece. Jesus saith unto them,
Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim.
And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of
the feast. And they bare it. When the ruler of the feast had tasted
the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the
servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called
the bridegroom, And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth
set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is
worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now. This beginning of
miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory;
and his disciples believed on him.
