7 Signs of Jesus in the Gospel of John

John 4:46-54

CRISIS Faith v 46-47

  • The father is DESPERATE
  • This father understood the value and gift of life:
    • GOD is the Creator of life
    • Every child is a GIFT from God
    • God holds every life in His HAND
  • This man came to Jesus in a CRISIS and Jesus met him at his point of NEED.

CONFIDENT  Faith v 47-49

  • He displays a confident faith that JESUS can do what no one was able to do; heal his son.
  • Jesus teaches us that signs, by themselves, are an INSUFFICIENT basis for faith
  • The ESSENCE of faith is in the complete TRUST of who Jesus is what He has promised.

CONFIRMED Faith v 50-52

  • All Jesus gives this father is His PROMISE
  • God’s promises are SUFFICIENT for a faith that is alive and active.
  • This dad TRUSTED Jesus and he OBEYED Jesus

CONTAGIOUS Faith v 53

  • It is not enough to know ABOUT Jesus; God wants us to know Jesus INTIMATELY and PASSIONATELY – to surrender our lives to Him and faithfully follow Him.
