My dear Brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given you for today is from the book of John 4:49 says, The Nobleman said to Jesus, ”Sir come down before my son dies. ”
From this context we see how the Father was very eager to meet Jesus and seek help, in order that his son, might get well. Every Father loves and cares for his son. No father would wish to see his son struggle for his life. Here was a nobleman waiting to meet Jesus. The nobleman had heard about Jesus. He heard that Jesus was coming to Cana of Galilee. The Galileans received Jesus because they had seen Him perform miracle in Jerusalem at the feast. The father knew that his son was at the verge of death. He was longing to meet Jesus at any cost and save the life of his son. He was a rich nobleman but his son was sick at Capernaum. His wealth or high position couldn’t save the life of his son. He knew that no one besides Jesus could save his son. So he was perplexed. When he heard that Jesus had come out of Judea, into Galilee he went to Him and implored Him to come down and heal his son, for he was at the point of death. Jesus said to him ‘Unless you people see signs and wonders,‘ you will never believe.’
The nobleman was filled with great fear, he said to Jesus, ‘Sir, come down before my child dies.’Jesus said to him, ‘Everything is possible for one who believes.’Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, ‘I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!’ Seeing his anxiety Jesus said to him, “Go your way your son lives.”The man believed the words of Jesus and so he departed. The noble man having heard about Jesus did not doubt Him instead he had faith in the Lord Jesus.
The nobleman did not know that Jesus could bring his son back to life even if he was dead. He went home with much fear. He did not realize that our God the Lord Jesus Christ, gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did.
But he believed His word. While he was still on his way home, his servants met him on the way with the news that his boy was living. When he enquired of them the hour when his son got better, they said to him, ‘Yesterday, at the seventh hour the fever left him. Then the father realised that this was the exact time at which Jesus had said to him, ‘Your son will live.’ So he and his whole household believed. The Bible says, , “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.”
My dear Brothers and Sisters, it is my earnest desire that you should all believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved. He who trusts in the Lord will be prospered. According to God’s word the Nobleman’s son believed on Him therefore his son was healed. Salvation came into his household.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord we thank You for instilling good spirit in the heart of my children. May they realize the Miracle working God. Help them to trust in the Living God. Give them the understanding to approach You in times of trouble. Bless them with all heavenly blessing. Make Your face shine upon Your them. In Jesus name we pray.
