In these passages is the account of Jesus healing the son of a royal official from Capernaum. The son was near death. At the time, Jesus was in Cana of Galilee. The man went to Cana, seeking Jesus. He found Jesus and pleaded for Jesus to heal the son. Jesus told the man that his son would live. The man returned to Capernaum and found his son in good health.
Prior to telling the man that his son would live, Jesus said to the people, “Unless you people see signs and wonders, you simply will not believe.” The official did not seek for a sign. He simply pleaded with Jesus to heal his son. When Jesus said to him, “go your way, your son lives,” the man believed the words that Jesus said to him.
It was the official’s belief in Jesus that saved his son. And so it is with us. We must lead with belief and Faith in the Lord. The Bible says that without Faith it is impossible to please God.
Without Faith we cannot understand God’s Word, the Bible. We must believe the Bible is true before we are able to understand it. When we lead with true belief, God will bless us with understanding and knowledge. God will guide us along the pathway that leads to Heaven.
