Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 68

68. The man took Jesus at His word and departed (John 4:50).

Simple faith. Jesus told the man that his son would live so he left, having no reason to doubt. No, Jesus did not come to his house as he had hoped. No, Jesus had not spoken any words of healing as he had imagined. He just sent the man on his way with a simple statement–and the man left. Can we trust the words of God like that? Can we claim the Bible’s promises and be content? Perhaps we are too concerned with how Jesus will fulfill His Word. We tend at times to become very focused on how things should be or what form Christ’s acts of faithfulness and love might take. Better to simply trust Him and depart in peace.
