“Jesus said to him, ‘Go; your son lives.’ The man believed the word that Jesus spoke to him and started off” (John 4:50).

A remarkable faith is one that does not require signs and wonders, but simply believes the word Jesus speaks. The purpose of John’s gospel was to offer a sampling of the things Jesus said and did for the purpose of bringing readers to a place of belief (20:30-31). Like the royal official, a simple belief in the testimony of Jesus’ words is a sufficient starting place for the life of faith.
