5 When he entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, appealing to him
6 and saying, “Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, in terrible distress.”
7 And he said to him, “I will come and cure him.”
8 The 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.
9 For 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.”
10 When 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.
11 I tell you, many will come from east and west
and will eat with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven,
12 while the heirs of the kingdom will be thrown into the outer darkness,
where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
13 And to the centurion Jesus said,
“Go; let it be done for you according to your faith.”
And the servant was healed in that hour.
The faith of the centurion, who was an outsider, a Roman, and a gentile,
was so great that Jesus commended him before his followers.
How strong is your faith?
“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for,
and assurance about what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1
