Faith Fridays are all about providing a visual to strengthen your faith. Some times we just need to witness the awesome moves of God in someone else’s life to remind us that He is real and can still perform miracles in our own lives! If we just believe, anything is possible with God!
He was a Roman soldier and an unlikely ally with the Jews. Yet, he amazed Jesus with his faith. When Jesus heard this, he marveled and said to those who followed him, “Truly, I tell you, with no one in Israel have I found such faith. (Mat 8:10 ESV)
The story of The Centurion’s Faith can be summed up as this man sought after Jesus to heal his gravely ill servant and with his remarkable faith and the Lord’s command, the servant was healed. When I come back to this story, I try to see what was was it about his faith and how can I exude the same faith. A few things I do know is that this man addressed the Lord with respect and humility, acknowledged his authority and believed that even if Jesus just spoke the word, his servant would be healed. The centurion believed he was unworthy of the Lord stepping foot into his house. The centurion was a Gentile and he reminds us that God desires all to be saved! Jesus looked at this man’s heart and saw a humble faith that had not Jesus pointed it out, we would have missed it by looking just at who and what he was.
Do you have faith like the centurion? Do you acknowledge God’s authority; do you even walk in it yourself? Do you remember what state you were in before the Lord came and saved you? Will you believe without a shadow of a doubt that all God has to do is just speak His Word and it’s done? Will you trust Him to save your loved ones? Will you seek God for help or remain helpless? Will you put your faith to action like the centurion or will you worry about what people think?
Watch this video about the centurion’s faith, then ask the Lord to arrest every doubt/disbelief within your faith and everything that hinders your walk with God.
