Topic: Blessed to Bring Blessing
The prophet Jeremiah and Jesus were proclaiming God’s truth to a world that did not want to hear the message they came to bring. Jesus knew that his message was not only meant for the people of Israel; and he knew that the people of Nazareth would have a hard time accepting the idea of a prophet for everyone.

They were offended by the idea that they did not hold exclusive status with God.

He changed plain water into the finest wine. He changed no wine into 180 gallons of wine. He changed the worry and embarrassment of the hosts into delight. And he changed followers (groupies) into believers.
