Received & Repaired - John 4:45-57
The Savior Received, 4:45 When Jesus departed Samaria, he went into Galilee, for, he said, ". . . a prophet hath no honour in his own country." 44 When he came to Galilee, the people received him, mainly because he had done so many miracles in and around Jerusalem. Many today, also, believe Jesus because of miracles, signs and wonders that they, many times, conjure in their minds. A Son Repaired, 4:46-57 Now coming to Cana in Galilee, Jesus met a noble man who had a son who was sick. The man was from Capernaum. The man, hearing that Jesus was in Galilee, went to Jesus to ask him to heal his son, who was sick unto death, 47-49. When the noble man asked Jesus to heal his moribund son, Jesus said, "Go thy way; thy son liveth." When the man went home, he found that his son had been healed at the same time that Jesus made this statement. This is the second miracle that Jesus did, which is an important one to us, knowing that Jesus is sovereign over all the affairs of life and death. Let us know and appreciate Jesus' sovereignty. Study it, know it, and worship Jesus for it.
