Hearing the Word iv

Jesus Heals an Official’s Son

43-44 Jesus had said, “Prophets are honored everywhere, except in their own country.” Then two days later he left 45 and went to Galilee. The people there welcomed him, because they had gone to the festival in Jerusalem and had seen everything he had done.

46 While Jesus was in Galilee, he returned to the village of Cana, where he had turned the water into wine. There was an official in Capernaum whose son was sick. 47 And when the man heard that Jesus had come from Judea, he went and begged him to keep his son from dying.

48 Jesus told the official, “You won’t have faith unless you see miracles and wonders!”

49 The man replied, “Lord, please come before my son dies!”

50 Jesus then said, “Your son will live. Go on home to him.” The man believed Jesus and started back home.

51 Some of the official’s servants met him along the road and told him, “Your son is better!” 52 He asked them when the boy got better, and they answered, “The fever left him yesterday at one o’clock.”

53 The boy’s father realized that at one o’clock the day before, Jesus had told him, “Your son will live!” So the man and everyone in his family put their faith in Jesus.

54 This was the second miracle that Jesus worked after he left Judea and went to Galilee.

Lord,
I hear your word.
Though I don’t see
what you have done,
I believe.

Your word,
your promise,
is enough for me,
I trust you.

I ask,
and I believe you will respond
and so I walk
in that faith,
I hold
all that I have
in that trust.

Lord,
help me hear your word
day by day,
in every situation
and walk on
in your strength.

I believe in you.
Help me
to put my faith
in your unfailing love
and loving action.

I believe in Jesus
