His Faith And Humility Pleased The Lord.
When we look unto the people we lead, we should always be mindful of Him Who leads us. Looking down the hierarchy, we should always remember our accountability to Him Who created us and also the entirety.
Jesus applauded the faith of the Centurion who not only showed his trust on Him, but rather did it with the utmost humility and reverence.
“When Jesus heard these things, He marveled at him, and turned around and said to the crowd that followed Him, “I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!””
Luke 7:9 (NKJV)
God is our Father and as from a good child, He expects our trust, respect and honor, for He knows that He is able and well deserves all the respect, however the problem is that often ‘we do not know this.’
Often we forget the power of God to provide for us and often we neglect and fail to give the respect due to Him.
The Centurion was a Roman Commander and was a man of authority, yet his faith and humility pleased the Lord.
Often God waits long for us to stay awake during our prayer times, waits to see us read at least for some time from the many Bibles we have stacked in our book shelves, He waits for our thankfulness for the healings and the provisions He has given to us as an answer of our ‘Urgent Prayers’, he waits for us to stop making complaints of the things we have actually misunderstood with regards to our church, our Pastor and our fellow believers, and when He finds all that He had actually expected from us from a stranger, He is forced to turn around and sadly make a comparison of the strangers good faith and respect to that of His own people who are unthankful, disrespectful and faithless.
The world is watching what God is doing and many are blessedly believing, yet they who claim to be His own need to learn to be more faithful and humble.
