01/11/20: Genesis 28-30; Matthew 8

Matthew 8:8  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.” 10 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 have always found the faith of this Gentile, pagan Roman leader to be inspiring.  While he probably had no foundation in Judaism he had a better foundation — faith in the Lord Jesus.  And even more importantly the reality that Jesus was a “higher power.”  Read these verses and ask – do I have this magnitude of faith?
