SEVEN SIGNS Part 2: Healing of the Nobleman’s Son (Walk by Faith)
March 14, 2021
1 John 1:1-3
That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us.
Jesus performed many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name.
Now while He was in Jerusalem at the Passover Festival, many people saw the signs He was performing and believed in His name.
Once 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.
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.
“Unless you people see signs and wonders,” Jesus told him, “you will never believe.”
The royal official said, “Sir, come down before my child dies.”
“Go,” Jesus replied, “your son will live.”…
…The man took Jesus at His word and departed.
While he was still on the way, his servants met him with the news that his boy was living. When he inquired as to the time when his son got better, they said to him, “Yesterday, at one in the afternoon, the fever left him.”
Then the father realized that this was the exact time at which Jesus had said to him, “Your son will live.” So he and his whole household believed.
This was the second sign Jesus performed after coming from Judea to Galilee.
Walking by faith is living every day as if Jesus is who He claimed to be.
Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen Me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name.
