Daily Devotional, Year 4 – February 28

O Taste and See That The Lord Is Good! Part 1: “The Wedding At Cana”

.

.

.

.

“O taste and see that the LORD is good…

He left not Himself without witness,

in that He did good,

and gave us rain from heaven,

and fruitful seasons,

filling our hearts with food and gladness.”

Psalm 34:8 & Acts 14:17

.

.

.

.

.

From reading the Chapter, “The Marriage At Cana” from the Ellen White book, “The Desire of Ages”, it becomes evident that Ellen White was no steely-eyed cult leader, as many erroneously suppose.

.

Oh no, this book is by no means an infallible work. Rather, she freely acknowledged that she also had “feet of clay”.

.

Nevertheless, upon hearing this 25 minute audio reading (scroll almost to the bottom of the page to hear), it rather is made manifest that Ellen White had great love for her Lord, Jesus, and a deep reverence for His infallible Word! (Of course, this fact is likewise made quite clear from reading so much of her writings!)

CHRISTIAN LIFE GETS BETTER AND BETTER

.

Now, upon listening to this chapter, Ellen White speaks of a number of spiritual lessons that this wonderful account teaches.

.

And, about 10 minutes into this audio reading she speaks of how the six water-pots of wine actually represent the joyful life of Christian Salvation. (But she also warns against the dangers of alcohol.)

GOING TO THE LOST

.

And about 20 minutes into this audio reading, Ellen White uses that Cana wedding as a means of http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Dutch_family_bbq.jpgemphasizing the importance of using social occasions for the purpose of leading the unsaved to Christ.

.

Of course, she also warned against freely mingling with unbelievers merely for pleasure.

.

But as one studies her writings, it becomes evident that her own personal life was very social, as she constantly let her light shine, ministering to many different persons, often inviting them to her own dinner table.

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

HEAVENLY OBJECT LESSON

.

“Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the LORD of hosts shall reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously.” Isaiah 24:23

.

When God created the Moon and the stars, He ordained them to “rule the night” (Gen. 1:16). The Moon, especially when it is full, can light your pathway through the night, as it reflects the light of the Sun.

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Um_moinho_dominando_a_ba%C3%ADa_%C3%A0_luz_lunar.jpg

So too, the Christian is to be a light to the world: to this sin-darkened world. But as the Moon must reflect the light of the Sun, in order to be a light to the world, so also must the Christian reflect the light of Jesus, to be a spiritual light to this planet in rebellion. Listen…

.

“Ye are the light of the world…Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16

.This is a drawing of a winter-time total lunar eclipse, first published in Bilder- (Picture Atlas of the Stemenwelt) in 1888

However, during an eclipse, the Earth passes directly between the Sun and the Moon, preventing that sunlight from shining on the Moon’s face. This is an incredible object-lesson about when the child of God allows the world to come between him and his Lord. Like the eclipse, that person no longer reflects the light of Jesus, because his or her love of this dark world of sin has eclipsed the light from the “Sun of Righteousness” (see Malachi 4:2).

.

And so, this is just one of the many poetic truths seen in the Moon. (For more on this subject of an eclipse, you may link to the article… “Lunar Eclipse & Spiritual Eclipse”)
