RISE Lent Reflection: Monday, March 12th, 2018

At that time Jesus left [Samaria] for Galilee. For Jesus himself testified that a prophet has no honor in his native place. When he came into Galilee, the Galileans welcomed him, since they had seen all he had done in Jerusalem at the feast; for they themselves had gone to the feast. Then he returned to Cana in Galilee, where he had made the water wine. Now there was a royal official whose son was ill in Capernaum. When he heard that Jesus had arrived in Galilee from Judea, he went to him and asked him to come down and heal his son, who was near death. Jesus said to him, “Unless you people see signs and wonders, you will not believe.” The royal official said to him, “Sir, come down before my child dies.” Jesus said to him, “You may go; your son will live.” The man believed what Jesus said to him and left. While the man was on his way back, his slaves met him and told him that his boy would live. He asked them when he began to recover. They told him, “The fever left him yesterday, about one in the afternoon.” The father realized that just at that time Jesus had said to him, “Your son will live,” and he and his whole household came to believe. Now this was the second sign Jesus did when he came to Galilee from Judea.

–John 4:43-54



In today’s reading we witness a father trusting in Jesus and his capabilities to heal his son by trust in Jesus’ word. Once the father realized that his son was not only healed but was healed when Jesus spoke the words “Your son will live”, he realized that his trust in the Lord saved his son. Just as the Royal Official trusted in the Lord without seeing so must we trust in God in all that He does and has planned for us.



Today when someone tells you a story or informs you of something, try to believe and have trust in what they are telling without judgement.
