The centurion answered and said, “Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed.” — Matthew 8: 8
Unconditional trust opens the way to the Lord’s power. The account of the centurion seeking help from Jesus for his sick servant offers a profound teaching about trust. Many people wish to experience the miraculous power of Jesus Christ, but not all recognise that trust is necessary for this. Trust is an essential aspect of faith.
Experiencing the Lord’s help depends on actively seeking and trusting Him.
It is evidenced by:
- our confidence,
- our patience and humbleness,
- by acknowledging His authority and praising the Lord.
