3. Assurance of Christ.
Updated: Sep 6, 2021
"Go ! It will be done just as you believed it would."( Matthew 8:13) There was nothing that excited Jesus more than faith that he had to acknowledge it publically. Yet the Centurion's faith was so simple! He didn't know anything about the Law and the Prophets but just believed that Christ was a man under the authority of God, just as he was under Caesar. Astonished by his faith, Jesus said to those following him: "I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith." Jesus was pleased to grant his request immediately. The ways of God are so simple that even Gentiles could appropriate for themselves, the promises of God by faith but the subjects of the kingdom couldn't because they tried to attain the promises of God by works. Let's rediscover our childlike faith which excites God's heart ! 'And without faith it is impossible to please God because anyone who comes to him must believe he exists and he rewards those who earnestly seek him.' (Hebrews 11:6) Amen.
