John 4:31-54

I wonder what the connection is between food and doing the will of God. Jesus said, "My food is to do the will of the one who sent me." Did he find it satisfying, like a good meal? Did it nourish his heart like food would nourish his body? Why did he say it like that?

Lift up your eyes to the harvest. Some sow, others reap. You are coming into someone else's work. I am convinced that we have a far to limited perspective on kingdom work. We need a bigger team. Jesus said this as the dust stirred up from the whole town walking out to see him gathered on the horizon.

John records the healing of the nobleman's son as the second miracle. How did they verify it? The man himself wasn't even there. He did, however, inquire about the time his son got better. He told his family and they believed in Jesus. Beyond that it was a private miracle.
