If there is one thing Jesus loves, it’s definitely sinners, and that pretty much covers everybody. If people were perfect, we wouldn’t need a savior. Actually that’s probably the second thing. Jesus probably loves God the Father even more.
But if there were three things He loved… Well, walking on water was probably pretty sweet too, so that might be number three. Let’s just say top five.
Wine is definitely in the top five of things Jesus likes. He made his own for parties, drank it at meals and even had it for his last supper, but he also made it clear that you should not be a drunkard. “Don’t drink and ride.” I’m pretty sure that was part of his ministry campaign slogan. Horses, donkeys, camels, pigs, sheep, oxen, leviathan. It doesn’t matter what kind of animal it is. If you’ve been drinking, don’t ride it.
Tonight is the first night of Grapefest in Grapevine, TX. The first night is free admission, and we love a great deal, so we’ll spend some time wandering around Main Street. We might eat some food and have a glass of wine with all of the other sinners. It’s what Jesus would do. We’ll definitely listen to some music and check out all the knick-knacks being peddled by the peddlers.
Public Service Announcement:
I don’t always drink wine, but when I do, I prefer to do so responsibly. Stay sober my friends.
