John 4

Our speaker during Family Bible Hour was Mr Steve Modrzejewski. His message was based on John 4: 43-54 (the healing of the nobleman's son):
 43Now after two days he departed thence, and went into Galilee. 44For Jesus himself testified, that a prophet hath no honour in his own country.
 45Then when he was come into Galilee, the Galilaeans received him, having seen all the things that he did at Jerusalem at the feast: for they also went unto the feast.
 46So Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee, where he made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum.
 47When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judaea into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him that he would come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point of death.
 48Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe.
 49The nobleman saith unto him, Sir, come down ere my child die.
 50Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth. And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way.
 51And as he was now going down, his servants met him, and told him, saying, Thy son liveth.
 52Then enquired he of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said unto him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him.
 53So the father knew that it was at the same hour, in the which Jesus said unto him, Thy son liveth: and himself believed, and his whole house.
 54This is again the second miracle that Jesus did, when he was come out of Judaea into Galilee
The above passage teaches us some lessons, including the following 
 The above passage has many lessons to teach us, including the following

  • money and power cannot solve our problems
  • faith takes Jesus at His word
  • the Nobleman's confident faith progressed to a contagious faith (his whole house also believed)
  • the Lord Jesus has power over distance
Mr Modrzejewski encourages all believers to rely and trust on the Lord Jesus over the little matters of life. Let's take Jesus at His word. Mr Modrzejewski's message, in full and in context, is available on DVD. Please see Romy.
