The Curing of a Royal Official’s Son
A royal official traveled twenty
Miles from Capernaum to Cana to ask
Jesus to cure his son who was near death.
The official was humbly persistent.
The official wanted Jesus to go
To Capernaum. Jesus cured long distance.
Miracles call us to faith and belief.
They show God’s mercy and mighty power.
When I was a high school junior, I rode
My bike twenty-five miles from Des Plaines to
Wheaton to see someone. She wasn’t home.
My hair was brown, curly, and thick. Now my
Hair is white, straight, and thin. God is protec-
ting my marriage. I was too good looking.
