You come to Jesus. You beg him to personally come and heal your son who is dying.
Jesus puts you off. Won’t go see him and heal him. Jesus makes a blunt statement that all you are interested in is miracles. Jesus challenges you.
Will you be put off? Will you slink away? Do you have faith?
This man did not slink away. He had faith and kept at Jesus. He begged. He pleaded. He knew Jesus could heal his son.
So, Jesus says to him:
“Go home. Your son lives.” ~~Jesus (John 4:51 The Message)
He went home. His son was healed. Just as he believed and just as Jesus said.
Jesus challenges us. Do we really believe?
