…the man believed …and started on his way. John 4:43-54 It was at least a days walk before returning to Capernaum where the official’s son lay close to death. It’s often difficult to walk away and trust that everything will be alright and yet by the time the official reached home, his son was healed. As we ourselves suffer or watch our loved ones sometimes succumb to various illnesses, how do we envision signs and wonders today? Are signs and wonders the essential part of our faith – or is our faith the substance of signs and wonders? Every journey we begin in faith is our confidence that as we believe and continue on our way “home”, the place where God has called us, in time we realize that by God’s grace, unseen signs and wonders have already gone before us.
Oh this is good the life of faith starts with faith and produces proof. Too many times we as Christians want our faith to start with proof and then we will believe. It is nominal Christianity but practical atheism.
Yes, Thanks so much for your comment. It is a wonderful and gracious (albeit challenging) journey to go forth knowing and trusting that God provides.
Yes it is!
