THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS


DAILY DEVOTIONS

HI!

A man crossed Niagra falls on a tight rope using only a wheelbarrow.
He made the return trip the same way.

As he approached the crowd, he spoke to one young man.
"Son, do you believe I can do that again?"

The young man answered, "Yes, sir."

The tight rope walker then said, "Ok, get in the wheelbarrow!"

John 4:46-54
46 So Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee, where he made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum.
47 When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judaea into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him that he would come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point of death.
48 Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe.
49 The nobleman saith unto him, Sir, come down ere my child die.
50 Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth. And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way.
51 And as he was now going down, his servants met him, and told him, saying, Thy son liveth.
52 Then inquired he of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said unto him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him.
53 So the father knew that it was at the same hour, in the which Jesus said unto him, Thy son liveth: and himself believed, and his whole house.
54 This is again the second miracle that Jesus did, when he was come out of Judaea into Galilee.

Again, let me speak about this word "believe."
The Greek word from which it is translated is pisteuo, which means to commit trust to, or have faith in, or cling to.

Jesus told the "nobleman" that unless he (and others) saw miracles, they would not "believe" -- commit to, or have trust in Jesus.

But the "nobleman" pleaded for his son's life a second time.
Then, Jesus put it to him simply: "GO! Your son is alive!"

Though Jesus would not come to the man's home, the man believed that Jesus' spoken word was enough!!
He left, BELIEVING!
On the way home, he was met by his servants who told him the son was alive and well.

My friend, when people commit to Jesus and place their faith in Him MIRACLES HAPPEN in their lives!!
The addict can become healed!
The alcoholic can become healed!
The homosexual can become healed!
The liar, the thief, the murderer, the abortionist can be forgiven!

The key is simply to repent from who I am, and turn to Jesus commit to trust in Him as Lord and Savior!

It's all about getting INTO the wheelbarrow of Christ!

What a GREAT GOD!
No wonder we call Him "SAVIOR!"

Love ya!
