The royal official said to him,
“Sir, come down before my child dies.”
Jesus said to him, “You may go; your son will live.”
The man believed what Jesus said to him and left. - John 4:49-50
In this brief Scripture passage we have two strong messages. One is the power of Jesus. Simply a word from him at a distance was able to cure a child. Second, and more important for us, is the faith of the man asking. We pray for many things, but do we truly believe that God can do them? What is the level of our faith? "Lord, I believe. Help my unbelief."
