Matthew 8:5-11

The story of the healing of the centurion’s servant is extraordinary in a couple of ways. The soldier is in command of one hundred men yet surprisingly concerned about the one who serves him. He is a non-Jew who not only addresses Jesus directly but calls him Lord. This story of compassion, the connection between faith and healing, gives clear indication of the mission to the Gentiles.

Lord, I am not worthy, but I rejoice in your love and care for me.
