Honey Dips – The faith of the Centurion

Matthew 8: 5-13

When Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, asking for help. “Lord,” he said, “my servant lies at home paralyzed, suffering terribly.”

Jesus said to him, “Shall I come and heal him?”

The centurion replied, “Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed. For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”

When Jesus heard this, he was amazed and said to those following him, “Truly I tell you, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith. I say to you that many will come from the east and the west, and will take their places at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. But the subjects of the kingdom will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go! Let it be done just as you believed it would.” And his servant was healed at that moment.”

God has the power to change any situation with the utterance of one word.

He can heal any aspect of your life with one word.

Trust Him.

Have faith in Him.

Faith is the key to opening doors that are closed; it is the key to unlock the answers to so many of our uttered prayers.

Faith in God’s power can change any situation.

This is the faith we need, a faith like the Centurion, that brings miracles into our lives.

May we have faith.
