My Thoughts on the Life of Christ
Healing the Nobleman's Son - John 4:43-53
Jesus had returned to Cana where He had performed His first miracle of turning water into wine. His fame reached the ears of a certain nobleman who lived about 20 miles away at Capernaum. The man came to Jesus, "Sir my son is dying, come and say the word that he might live." Jesus put him off by placing him in the class of the many miracle chasers who's only interest was in seeing the spectacular. The man cried out again, "Sir, come my son is dying." Jesus was moved and told the nobleman to go home, his son would live. When he arrived home he found that his son's fever had left at the same hour that Jesus spoke the word. He and his whole household became believers.
Conclusion and application:
Jesus turned His back on the popularity and acclaim He was enjoying in Judea and went to remote regions to continue preaching. His sole motive was to advance the kingdom of God. Are we willing to do the same? Conditions may change, the message remains the same: "Repent and believe the gospel."
When those of the religious establishment rejected Jesus, He took His message to the remote regions where He found receptive listeners. When Jesus spoke, people listened, because He spoke as one with authority (Matthew 7:29; Luke 4;22; John 7:26).
Jesus found it unnecessary to travel 20 miles to pray for the nobleman's son. He simply spoke the word. Many today go to elaborate lengths to get God's attention. Some today act similarly to the prophets of Baal (I Kings 18:28) who prayed and carried on in a frenzy all day. We don't have to be like that. We need only to believe the word and speak it in the name of Jesus. (Mark 16:17-18) Heaven is obligated to respond (Luke 21:8; John 14:13; Hebrews 4:16).
