    How fitting indeed, living water, thanks for sharing Mark!

    Today’s text is a favorite of mine when I want to explain or illustrate true faith. I have always been suspect of those who are focused on looking for “signs and wonders” to bolster their faith. “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the belief in things not seen“ (Hebrews 11:1). The Roman official took Jesus at His Word before he heard the news of his sons recovery. I like signs and wonders, but they are not the source of my belief in Christ. I take him at His word first and look for the signs and wonders second. For me, signs and wonders are affirmation of something I have already accepted. They are the icing on the cake and a cause for praise and adoration.
