John chapter four in verse 47 describes a father who had a sick son: “He went and begged Jesus to return to Capernaum to heal his son, who was about to die.” Easy, pressing. The official had a request and a plan of motion. In his thoughts, the 2 would stroll aspect by aspect from Cana to Capernaum.
The response of Christ surprises us. “Will you by no means consider in me except you see miraculous indicators and wonders” (John four:48)? He waved a warning flag in opposition to a contingent religion that claims I’ll consider if… or I’ll consider when… Then Jesus informed the daddy, “Return house. Your son will dwell” (John four:50). This was the second of fact for the daddy, the second he set out on the longest stroll. The person believed within the spoken phrase of Christ. Now you do the identical. Bear in mind, mates, you might be by no means alone.
