A man from Capernaum approached Jesus in Cana. ”Come heal my son” the man asked Jesus. Jesus said the boy would be healed. And so the man set out for Capernaum. While the man was on his way, some of his servants met him, with the news that the son was alive and well. The good news from the servants was met with a good question from the father:” What time did he get better?” Reply: “One o’clock.” The very time Jesus had spoken the word.
You see, Jesus had worked a long-distance healing. The miracle was not just in the life of the boy but in the saving faith of the entire household. Isn’t that what Jesus desired? But the boy eventually died. The life-giving miracle of Jesus was short-term, but the faith-giving miracle of Jesus was eternal. The entire household believed in Jesus, and this resulted in everlasting life. Remember, friends, you are never alone.
