The nobleman from Capernaum was a man of great faith (John 4 v 46 and 47).
He had obviously heard about Jesus and what He was doing, so he asked Jesus to come and heal his son.
Well, actually he didn’t need that; he just required the word of Jesus and he believed.
Jesus spoke out healing and the man believed; he did not need Jesus to physically come and lay hands on his son.
Jesus spoke and he believed.
This is a picture for us today that the Word should be enough for us.
We should not need “feathers and gold dust” or experiential knowledge in order to believe, the Word of God should be good enough!
Thomas needed to see the wounds on Jesus in order to believe.
Jesus said those that believed without physical evidence were blessed (John 20 v 29).
We are blessed through having the Word of God.
The Word of God tells us that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God and that believing on Him would give us life (John 20 v 31).
We are indeed truly blessed, having the Word of God (the more sure word of prophecy), and living under grace, under the New Covenant.
Can you see how the Word of God is so much better than “feathers and gold dust”?
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that we have your Word, the more sure word of prophecy”.
John 20 v 29…..Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed
