That’s A Belief! (Luke 7:1-10)

Luke 7:1-10 - That's A Belief!


A centurion’s faith not only astounds Jesus, it totally shapes the kind of person he is.


Luke 7:1-10     Matthew 8:13     Mark 6:6     Luke 4:14, 37     Luke 5:21-33     Luke 6:11     John 8:31-32     Romans 1:17     Romans 5:1-2     2 Corinthians 5:7     Ephesians 2:8     Hebrews 11:6     James 1:5


“The centurion was the total opposite of Naaman. Remember Naaman? He was another Gentile military commander in need of healing. When the man of God didn’t come out to meet him, he pitched a fit. ‘Do you know who I am?!?’ But here, the centurion says, “I know who I am. I don’t deserve it. I’m not clean enough. I’m inadequate.” And, on a spiritual level, he was absolutely right.
C.S. Lewis once wrote this to a friend: ‘The one essential symptom of the regenerate life is a permanently horrified perception of one’s natural and (it seems) unalterable corruption. The true Christian’s nostril is to be continually attentive to the inner cesspool.'”
