In Capernaum, Jesus is accosted by some men, elders of the Jews. The centurion’s highly value servant was sick, and the Roman, having heard stories of Jesus, sent to ask Him to go to heal his servant. However, whilst on the way, they were met by others who implied that Jesus did not need to go to the house, but simply give the command for the servant to be healed. Jesus responded:
When Jesus heard this, He was amazed at him and turning to the crowd following him, he said, ‘I tell you, I have not found such great faith even in Israel.’ Then the men who had been sent returned to the house and found the servant well. Luke 7:9-10
Today you are invited to consider the depth of your faith. Do you believe in miracles in today’s time? Why/why not? What do you think you ‘have to do’ for Jesus to hear your prayers and answer them? All the centurion did was ask – and believe. How would it change your prayers, and your relationship with Jesus if this was all you did? What challenges you most about this? Speak to Jesus today about these things. What does He reply?
May God bless you with ever-deepening faith in Him from this moment on.
