One of my favorite stories of Jesus is the one with the Centurion’s sick servant and the faith he displayed to Jesus and His ability to heal and save. The Centurion was a gentile and was probably not someone who knew there was a Messiah coming to save the world, but he saw what was happening and he accepted what was possible by putting his faith in Jesus. Jesus Himself reacted to this man’s faith in Matthew 8:10, When Jesus heard this, he was astonished and said to those following him, “I tell you the truth, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith.” Knowing what is possible with Jesus is all we really need to believe He can do miracles in our lives. May we all have the faith of the Centurion and know Jesus has the ability to save and heal us. And, most importantly, let us all know and have faith Jesus has the capacity to love us more than we ever thought possible, despite the flaws and sin in our lives.
