Readings for the day:
“Amen, I say to you, in no one in israel have I found such faith.” -Matthew 8:10.
Christ was surprised by the faith the centurion had, and that made him utter such statement. The Centurion recognized the Supreme Power of Christ in heaven and on earth and Found himself unworthy to hold Christ in his Home but instead he asked for his order concerning his servant.
Do we have this Kind of Faith the centurion possess? The Kind of Faith that recognize God’s Supreme Power and Authority. Can we host Jesus in our heart to come and dine with us and find a home in our abode? Do we still believe in the healing power of christ? Can Jesus utter similar thoughts in our life, a glorious word based on our Faith in him.
This kind of Faith is a childlike trust believing in what Jesus Christ can do for us. In this season of Advent, let us ask the Lord for an increase in Faith, the kind of Faith that wouldn’t make us doubt for a minute what God can do for us. In the end Jesus assures us ” many will come from the east and west, and will recline with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob at the banquet in the kingdom of heaven.
Lord, Increase our Faith.
