In Luke 7:1-9 we read about Jesus healing the servant of a Roman centurion who is deathly ill. Jesus is moved by the centurion's faith, and says to those around him "I tell you I have not found such great faith even in Israel" (vs. 9). As I read through this passage I absolutely saw and appreciated this demonstration of faith by the centurion. But I also noticed and appreciated a number of other qualities he displayed--things like humility, respect, understanding, belief and wisdom. I came away from my read with the thought that I would do well to model what I observed from this man.
So what stood out to you about this centurion? How did God speak to your heart through this passage today? Tami
