As the Internet has grown and changed, so has the face of various ministries. Traditional preaching has always been and always will be God’s primary method for reaching the unbeliever. However, the Lord has made other tools available to us so that we may reach the masses. In the Apostle Paul’s day, one had to travel from town to town to spread the Gospel. The preachers were restricted to literally speaking face-to-face with others or sending letters. As technology evolved, people could easily spread the Word of God through print. One person could take the message of salvation to a town or region. Still, travel was required. During the twentieth century, we watched as technology gave us radio and then television. Both are excellent mediums to reach vast numbers of people, but both are exceedingly expensive. Today, we are truly in a magnificent age – an age where millions of people can be reached with the Gospel of Christ for very little, if any, cost. Thanks to the miracle of the Internet, we can give the message of the Gospel of Christ to anyone, almost anywhere in the world. The cost: very little more than the effort required to create the message. We hope you will spend some time here. Get to know us and let us get to know you.
John 4:46-54 So Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee, where he made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum. (47) When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judaea into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him that he would come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point of death. (48) Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe. (49) The nobleman saith unto him, Sir, come down ere my child die. (50) Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth. And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way. (51) And as he was now going down, his servants met him, and told him, saying, Thy son liveth. (52) Then inquired he of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said unto him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him. (53) So the father knew that it was at the same hour, in the which Jesus said unto him, Thy son liveth: and himself believed, and his whole house. (54) This is again the second miracle that Jesus did, when he was come out of Judaea into Galilee.
When we get toward the end of the book of John, we will see that Jesus did many more miracles than could ever be recorded. Here, we see another miracle. A nobleman rushes in to see Jesus – his son is dying. This nobleman is rich, powerful and yet he cannot save his own son. Can Jesus save his son? Jesus said the Jews were looking for a sign. They wanted proof of the power Jesus had. Jesus gave them their proof. Jesus proved Himself to this nobleman by healing his son. Even today, the Jews are still looking for proof that Jesus is their Messiah. Even today, they do not believe. What do you believe?
John 4:39-45 And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I did. (40) So when the Samaritans were come unto him, they besought him that he would tarry with them: and he abode there two days. (41) And many more believed because of his own word; (42) And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world. (43) Now after two days he departed thence, and went into Galilee. (44) For Jesus himself testified, that a prophet hath no honour in his own country. (45) Then when he was come into Galilee, the Galilaeans received him, having seen all the things that he did at Jerusalem at the feast: for they also went unto the feast.
This woman had just believed in Jesus – she had just been saved. As soon as she was saved, she ran back to her town, to her people and family and told them what had happened. She was so excited that her soul had been rescued. In fact, her joy was so great that others around her wanted what she had. They wanted to know more about Jesus too. When people are around you, do they see the joy of the Lord in you? Do you make people want to get to know Jesus?
