The Centurion

A breakfast discussion so in line with Luke's Gospel today. Is our faith misplaced? Do we put too much faith in legislators, physicians, teachers, self-help experts and consultants, and not nearly enough in God? And are we willing to go into an unknown to trust in God? The centurion actually did both. This Roman official knew Caesar couldn't heal his slave. His complete faith in Christ, to the point of declaring his own unworthiness, should speak volumes to us. Any false gods in the closet that need to go?

  1. Thank you for your post. It's true, we are so quick to trust others with the most important things, even our lives. And yet, when it comes to trusting God.....well, most times we end up giving God advice because we think that we know better. I'm sure that God has a sense of humor and incredible patience with us. When I finally let go of my control and trust God, I am never sorry and experience great peace.
