Souls For Christ Ministries Daily Devotion
Welcome to Souls For Christ Ministries Daily Devotions where we look into the words of Jesus daily to receive inspiration and wisdom from Him!
"5 And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, 6 And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. 7 And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him. 8 The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed."Mathew 8:5-8
It is a rare thing for a Centurion to call anyone besides the Emperor, Lord. Who was this man that even Centurions in which had servants of their own and who themselves only called the emperor Lord and served no other would actually have them calling him Lord? This man was the son of the living God, the Messiah who had the power to save and heal. Here this Centurion realizes the healing powers of Jesus and goes to him in faith, not demanding Jesus to heal his servant, not ordering Jesus to heal his servant, but instead in such an amazingly humble way he requests only that Jesus speak the word and his servant would be healed. Often in our despair we go to God with our urgent demand, with words that point at God stating You said instead of humbling ourselves at his feet and requesting him in faith to give his word and this will be enough.
Is his spoken word enough to do what we need?
