“Go,” Jesus replied, “your son will live.” The man took Jesus at his word and departed.
Jesus was back in Cana where he’d turned water into wine, when he was visited by an official from Capernaum whose son was desperately ill. When asked to heal him, Jesus just told him to go back home as his son was already cured. Showing amazing faith, he went and learned with joy that his son’s recovery had begun the moment Jesus had spoken. An immediate, miraculous cure rewarded his faith. It’s the same today. Faith in Jesus still changes lives with immediate effect and eternal consequences!
