for this reason I did not even consider myself worthy to come to You, but just say the word, and my servant will be healed. Luke 7:7
What is your attitude when you are approaching Jesus? Here is a man who is a Centurion, A Centurion was a Roman military office, so as this man stated he had great power and authority from a worldly perspective. (Luke 7:8)
But the amazing thing is this Roman Centurion actually recognized who Jesus is and gave him the respect and admiration that he deserved. First he showed humility ands second he showed faith that Jesus was able to heal his servant
Now when Jesus heard this, He marveled at him, and turned and said to the crowd that was following Him, “I say to you, not even in Israel have I found such great faith.” Luke 7:9
Just as we are amazed this man understood who Jesus is, the Lord marveled at this mans faith. Here is a Roman Gentile Military leader coming to Jesus in faith, while the Jewish religious leaders rejected Christ and wanted him dead
This is the respect and faith we need to come to Jesus with!
