Believing Without Seeing!
Jesus returns to the site of His first public miracle, and He’s going to work a second public miracle. In between the two was a miracle not so public. It was more internal than external, and it was the greatest of all miracles…saving the soul of the Bad Samaritan.

The Nobleman works directly for the King. A man of prominence and means. He seeks out the Lord and besought [begged] Him to work a miracle for his sick son. Jesus says, go back home, it’s all fine now. [Home was at least 20 miles away!] The Nobleman didn’t question or doubt it, but instantly believed…without seeing!

John 20:29

Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

Hebrews 11:1

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

While walking home he’s met with his own servants whom he had left with his son. Most of us would see them and assume they were coming to tell us the child had finally died. But he knew better, and seeing the smiles on their faces he knew what they were about to say. Indeed, they were come to tell him the child was fine now.

Truly fascinating is what the Nobleman asked them. “What time did he get better?” It was at the exact moment Jesus spoke the word. This is how faith is supposed to work.

1. Man has problem.

2. Man brings problem to Jesus.

3. Jesus makes promise to man.

4. Man takes Jesus at His word.

5. Jesus comes through!

This is how faith is supposed to work. Without faith it’s impossible to please God. Faith is humble trust in the promises of God.
