The Book of John Chapter 4 | Part 2

Pastor Josh Denham

In this sermon, Pastor Josh delves into John 4:43-54, describing Jesus’ journey back to Galilee after staying with the Samaritans for two days. This passage details Jesus’ interaction with a nobleman from Capernaum, who seeks healing for his son. Despite the nobleman’s insistence on Jesus’ physical presence, Jesus demonstrates His power and mercy by healing the son from a distance.

Pastor Josh compares this event with the faith of the Roman centurion in Matthew 8:5-13, who believed in Jesus’ authority to heal without His physical presence. This comparison underscores the significance of faith that does not rely on visible signs but trusts in Jesus’ word and power. The sermon encourages believers to avoid putting God “in a box” and to trust in His divine methods and timing, especially during challenging times. Pastor Josh concludes by affirming that God’s plans, even when involving suffering, serve a higher purpose and ultimately lead to spiritual growth and deeper trust in Him.
