05/06/19 – John 4:43-54; Psalm 105:16-36; Proverbs 14:26-27

John 4Once more he visited Cana in Galilee, where he had turned the water into wine.And there was a certain royal official whose son lay sick at Capernaum. 47 When this man heard that Jesus had arrived in Galilee from Judea, he went to him and begged him to come and heal his son, who was close to death

As you read through the “healing of the official’s son” did you see the word “faith” written?

I did not and, yet we have good rationale that the official did have faith, even if it was faith born out of desperation.  Jesus was in Cana  and the official was from Capernaum.  This meant that the official had to travel roughly 20 miles and climb 2,000 feet to find Jesus.

My thought is that even though we do not see the word we see the official put his “faith” into action — a powerful lesson for all of us.
