5When he entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, appealing to him6and saying, “Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, in terrible distress.” 7And he said to him, “I will come and cure him.” 8The centurion answered, “Lord, I am not worthy to have you come under my roof; but only speak the word, and my servant will be healed. 9For I also am a man under authority, with soldiers under me; and I say to one, ‘Go,’ and he goes, and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes, and to my slave, ‘Do this,’ and the slave does it.” 10When Jesus heard him, he was amazed and said to those who followed him, “Truly I tell you, in no one in Israel have I found such faith. (Matthew 8:5-10, NRSV)
Do we have the faith of this man?
Do we believe that God will do for us what God has said God will do, or do we question it because we haven’t seen it?
Do we wonder if the promise is true because we have not felt it or had the answers we thought we would?
Do we believe it because God said it or do we question it and wonder until it happens?
Trust shows through our actions. Let us live like this centurion, knowing that God’s promises are true and show that faith to the world.
