Continuing our series in the Gospel of Matthew, we look at the faith of the centurion and the response of the Lord Jesus Christ to it. We see that the centurion had:

  • Loving faith
  • Active faith
  • Humble faith
  • Believing faith

Christ marveled at the centurion’s faith. Here was the firstfruits of the Gentiles coming to God through Christ, and here was one who had faith of a kind that Christ had not found even among the Jews of His day.

We are challenged to consider our own faith, and whether we are playing our full part to bring those whom God would call from the east and the west into His church.
