The Unseen Miracle Part Two

Did you read part one?

Jesus works in the unseen middle, performing miracles we may never see. Unseen miracles happen everyday.

When Water Drops Collide

But sometimes those miracles aren’t just for you. Sometimes Jesus does a miracle for you, but it benefits someone else in a way you’d never imagine.

My wife pointed this out to me.

Look again at that text:

On the third day there was a wedding at Cana… When the wine ran out, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine”… Now there were six stone water jars there for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding twenty or thirty gallons. Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water.” And they filled them up to the brim. And he said to them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the feast.” So they took it. When the master of the feast tasted the water now become wine, and did not know where it came from (though the servants who had drawn the water knew)”… John 2

At the end of that passage, we see another amazing thing (that’s the beauty of God’s Word; He likes to reveal Himself to you and to me in many ways):

The servants were there the whole time, and they experienced the miracle from a different perspective.

Sure. There’s the unseen miracle.
But then there are the servants who listen to Jesus say, “Fill those jars”. So they find some water themselves and then they fill the jars, themselves. And then Jesus says, “Take some water out of the jar you yourself filled, and bring it to Kid & play (ok, maybe that wasn’t the name of the party thrower, but they did throw a house party, right?).”

And they did. And that’s when it happened, right before their eyes: the master tasted wine, not water.

The miracle meant for the house guests was now seen from a different perspective. John writes, “The servants who had drawn the water knew [where the wine/miracle came from].”

They knew. They knew that Jesus performed an unseen miracle.

Sometimes your miracles aren’t just for you.

Knowing this, what should you do the next time an unseen miracle comes your way?
