Healing from a Distance (John 4:43-54)
Jesus returns to Galilee from Samaria. It is the place where he turned water into wine. Many believe there because they were at the feast when it happened. An official comes to Jesus to ask him to heal his son. Jesus says you won't believe unless you see signs and miracles. But, he just pleads for him to come. So Jesus tells him to go home, your son is well. He heals him from a great distance. The man believes along with the rest of his household. Nothing is beyond Jesus. He can do anything. Lord, heal our church. Help us to become effective and impactful in our community and throughout the world. Heal my daughter of diabetes. Help me lead well.
