Matthew 8:5-13 The Centurion’s Servant Healed

Roman Centurion

The Roman Centurion’s Faith

Jesus entered into Capernaum. I wonder how long after the mountain top teaching this was. Was this still early in Jesus’ ministry? Did He enter in with a crowd or just Him and His disciples? Was He famous enough by now that even the Roman army knew of Him and were keeping watch on Him? Did the centurion come to Him right away or after He had been in town for a bit? Was Jesus teaching and doing miracles before the centurion approached Him?

The centurion came to Him asking for His help. Luke records that the centurion sent his request through another one of his servants. Regardless of who delivered the message, the request came from the centurion. Something must have convinced the centurion that Jesus could, or would, help him. Maybe the centurion had heard of Jesus’ compassion for the sick and he was appealing to Him on those grounds. Maybe his servant was Jewish and he thought that would motivate Jesus to heal him. The bottom line was he was desperate! He loved this servant and his servant’s suffering had touched him so deeply that he would do whatever it took to take away his servant’s pain. Just like God and Jesus loved us and were moved by our suffering.

When Jesus said He would go to the centurion’s home to heal the servant TRUE faith came into play. The centurion recognized Jesus as having authority. I’m betting this was built at the same time as his courage to approach Jesus was growing. Jesus had to have been teaching or healing within sight or reporting distance of the centurion to generate such a response. Was Jesus under observation by the Roman guards, maybe even while on the mountain top? Were the guards reporting back to the centurion? That would make sense to me as to how the centurion knew of Jesus’ authority AND ability to heal.

As a Roman centurion, this man had authority over all the Jews within his assigned territory. He could have simply ordered Jesus to do as he wanted. But he recognized that Jesus was not subject to him but he was actually subject to Jesus’ authority. He recognized Jesus’ authority because he lived a life completely governed by authority. Even on the mountain top the people recognized that Jesus had authority because of how He was teaching. Everything Jesus did and said, spoke of His authority and His assignment from God. The centurion recognized this and acted according to his training. With superiors, NEVER presume to tell them what to do. Make a request only if necessary and don’t impose on him any more than is absolutely necessary to get the job done. Fly under the radar as much as possible. With subordinates, expect EVERY command to be carried out to the letter. Expect allegiance and obedience at all times. Be firm but fair in all your discipline and your men will willingly submit to your authority. In all actions, follow the chain of command.

Jesus was seen by the centurion as his superior and was addressed accordingly. Jesus was blown away by this man’s insight and faith. Not even the religious leaders, who clearly should have recognized Jesus as their superior, behaved in this manner. Unshakable faith in Jesus’ ability to do ANYTHING He chose to do. I wonder if the centurion would have been surprised by Jesus when He calmed the storms.

The fact that the centurion’s servant was healed the moment Jesus spoke the words was a no brainer for the centurion. The servant might have been amazed at how it all went down. Did he even know the centurion had sent to Jesus for help? What a testimony he had to share! What became of him after his healing?

I wonder where our centurion was during Jesus’ trial and crucifixion. Did he even know what was going on way down in Jerusalem? If he did know, was he standing ideally by, still following the chain of command and following orders? Did he have to take part in the actual events? Was he the one who said, “Surely He was the Son of God?” Was he on his knees weeping? I pray he was spared of having to take part in Jesus’ suffering. Ray Boltz song “The Hammer” comes to mind here. He and I were both there that day then.

Father God, I am undone by the part I played in Your Son’s death! I have something I wish I could say to that centurion who stood at the foot of the cross that day. Not WAS but IS! Jesus IS the Son of God. His Sonship didn’t end that day. He’s ALIVE and continuing that relationship today! Thank You for Your amazing love displayed that day!

I am awed by every account of love poured out by Jesus while here on Earth. Jesus displayed His relationship, His authority, and His mission so clearly that even those outside “His family” could clearly see it. Yet His own refused Him. For my own sake, I’m so glad they did. Their rejection opened the way for my acceptance. You had it all well in hand all along. After all, YOU hold absolute authority. Not that You forced facts to fit Your design at every step but that You knew Your creations so well You KNEW how we would react. Thank You for including me in Your plans from the beginning. Help me to recognize and respect Your authority in my life as clearly as the centurion did. I want to go where You send me. Speak when You call me. And wait when You say to. You created me, so You know how hard that last one is. Still, I’m willing to learn.

    • Annette Vincent says:

      Ricio,
      Thank you for your kind words. I appreciate reading all comments and welcome you to continue reading. I pray that you found something you can take with you in your daily walk. My “payment” for sharing is knowing that God’s words are touching others. I also have ads on the page that are “supposed” to pay me for my time. That part of this blog is not really even important to me any more, but if you feel so inclined, simply click to check them out. Don’t even have to buy anything, since they simply pay for the traffic.

      I hope to see you again and welcome all comments. Feel free to join in on any discussion.

    Thanks for any other informative website. The place else could I am getting
    that type of info written in such a perfect means?
    I’ve a mission that I am simply now running on, and
    I’ve been on the glance out for such information.

    • Annette Vincent says:

      I’m certain I’m not the only one with a daily bible study blog out there, and probably not the only one who writes in first person format, but I don’t know who or where you would find them. I would do a google search if I was looking for more sites. I appreciate you coming to check out my site. I pray you found something you could use in your daily walk and welcome you to come back any time.

      Not all of my posts are written in this format, but quite a lot of them are because this is what I see when I read my bible. I like to get into the story and see it through the eyes of the original participants.

  13. RandyOKucera says:

    I’d like to thanks for the efforts you’ve place in scripting this site.
    I am just hoping to check out a similar high-grade
    articles or content by you at a later time also.

    Actually, your creative writing abilities has
    motivated me to have my own blog now 😉

    • Annette Vincent says:

      Hi Randy,
      Thank you for visiting my site. I pray you found something you can take with you on your walk. I’m very happy to hear that my writing has inspired you to write also. I love writing in so many different voices. Please feel free to come back any time. I enjoy reading all the comments. I also welcome differing points of view, in case you have any.

  14. FloraVDeliso says:

    Hey there! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if

    to new updates.

      I pray you found something to take for your walk from the reading. Please feel free to comment any time! I love reading what people write, even if it is telling me they disagree. I welcome all input.

  15. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

    • Annette Vincent says:

      Thank you for visiting my site. I pray you also found something you can use in your daily walk. I actually try to write every day. A lot of the entries are written in informative style while many others are done in first person narrative (putting you in the story). I am by no means an expert in bible studies, but I like learning about the people and places I’m reading about.

      My soul is filled with music and often the things I write about trigger songs that complement or enhance what I’m writing about. I share those links as another avenue for people to immerse themselves in the questions, answers, or side roads that the lessons bring out.

      I hope you join us again. I enjoyed reading your comment and look forward to other insights you might want to share, even if they don’t agree with my point of view. All ideas are welcome.

    It’s amazing to pay a visit this site and reading the views of
    all friends regarding this post, while I am also zealous of getting experience.

    • Annette Vincent says:

      Thanks for visiting. I like reading the comments too. It helps me know what others are taking from what I post. I won’t claim to be the “author” of what you read because I truly believe it comes from God. I will take credit for being the scribe though.

      As far as betting experience for your own writing, I suggest picking a subject that really interests you and write about it as often as you can, even if you don’t publish everything you write. I have VOLUMES of bible study journals that are staying in the drawer. I wanted to do this one fresh each day with my readers. I hope you found something that you can take with you on your daily walk too. Hope to hear from you again.

      Happy writing!

    you are doing any unique trick. Moreover, The contents are masterwork.
    you’ve performed a fantastic task on this matter!

    • Annette Vincent says:

      Thank you for visiting and for the complements. I only have input on the web page design (i.e. background color, menus). The content is a product of my time with God. I will take credit for the scribe part but He is the true author. It’s awe inspiring on the days when I don’t have a clue what to write, then He brings a new angle into focus and I can see where He wants me to go with it. I pray that every reader finds something from Him in my writings. Something to take on their own personal walk with Jesus.

  24. HarveyWPynes says:

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like
    you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you
    can do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that,
    this is excellent blog. An excellent read. I will certainly be
    back.

    • Annette Vincent says:

      Thanks for visiting Harvey. I look forward to seeing you again. I trust you found something personal for your walk with Jesus. I’ve thought about adding more pictures as the stories go along but wondered if it would take away from the message or interrupt the flow of the story. Another problem is finding pictures that accurately represent what the story is talking about. I will consider your suggestion.

    It’s with a totally different topic but it really has virtually a similar layout and design. Great selection of colors!

    • Annette Vincent says:

      Hi Jean,
      Thank you for visiting my website. I use a hosting company that probably reuses several templates for background and such, so I could easily be using one others have used. As for content, since I’m drawing from the bible, a lot of what I write will be familiar. I believe my viewpoint, on the streets with Jesus, is more on the original side. Check out some of the “first person” accounts. Those are my favorites. Whichever posts you read, I pray they touch you in some way and that you find something personal for your own walk with Jesus. That is after all the whole reason I write. To bring us all a little closer to Jesus.
      Feel free to visit and comment any time.

      Hi Lauree,
      Thanks for visiting my site. I pray you found something in the article to help you in your daily walk with Jesus. I understand procrastination too! I often fight with that issue myself, especially when the grandkids are visiting. I just have to keep reminding myself that in order to get out of life what I want I have to put in time with the important thing. The most important thing being time with God. Fortunately that is what my blog is about so I can do two of my important things at once.
      Good luck with your battle with procrastination. 🙂

    Wow, awesome weblog layout! How lengthy have you ever been running
    a blog for? you make blogging glance easy. The whole look of your site is fantastic, as neatly as the content!

    • Annette Vincent says:

      Hi Lorna,
      Thanks for visiting my site and for your kind words of encouragement. I have been blogging since February this year, but I have been writing for most of my life. As for the layout, I give credit to my web hosting provider. They set the background colors and the windows for working within. I chose the categories and insisted on the menus. I use html to get the rest of what I want accomplished. WordPress does the rest.
      Having a subject you are passionate about makes blogging easier. I sometimes get overloaded and don’t get to write every day. I feel a little guilty for missing those days but I figure that God knows what I have on my plate and forgives me for missing a day now and then.
      I pray you found something in the content that you cant take with you on your daily walk with Jesus. Feel free to join us any time. I appreciate and look forward to all comments, even those that don’t agree with my views. Happy blogging!

    Hi! I understand this is somewhat off topic having said that i was wondering which blog platform
    are you presently using for this website? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking
    at alternatives for the next platform. I would personally be great should
    you could point me in the direction of an excellent platform.

    • Annette Vincent says:

      Hi Wilton,
      I use WordPress too so I don’t have any new direction for you. I am wondering if I just got hacked too. I have had almost 40 comments in my spam folder that all look VERY similar. I figure any traffic is good traffic but I got tired of the same comments. I approved most but stopped after 30. SO glad to see a real comment from you. Hope you get your situation sorted out.

    • Annette Vincent says:

      All I can suggest is a good virus protection and a on the ball hosting company. I use Kaspersky for my virus protection at home.

  59. Hello are using WordPress for your site platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and set up my own. Do you need any html coding knowledge to make your own blog? Any help would be greatly appreciated!|

    • Annette Vincent says:

      Yes, I am using WordPress for posting my blogs. I don’t HAVE to use any html but find that I occasionally want to. I use it to get a specific look in some of my pages, especially the Lessons Learned on Daddy’s Lap page. I also used it to establish interior links on that page. Regular linking coding is already built into WordPress and it is VERY user friendly.

      If you want to learn basic html coding to enhance what you get from WordPress, a google search for on the topic nets some very good results. A lot of them are free.

      I also have a hosting company that set me up with my site background and look. They handle all my technical issues and offer a LOT of great services. Click on the link in the sidebar to access them, if you are interested. They are not free but what they provided and still provide for me is invaluable. If you are thinking of starting a webpage as part of a business, the fees you pay are tax deductible (in the United States anyway). Good luck with your endeavor.

  63. None of us can boast about the morality of our ancestors. The records do not show that Adam and Eve were married.

    • Annette Vincent says:

      Thank you for visiting my site. I pray that you found something to take with you on your walk with Jesus. Thank you also for raising an important point of your own. I would like to share my view with you on this point.

      As Adam and Eve were the very first people and Eve was part of Adam, their reunification made them one again. Genesis 2:26 calls them “man and wife.” Jesus’ own words in Matthew 19:4-6 quotes Genesis and says, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”

      Jesus’ words were in answer to the Pharisees asking Him about divorce. If Adam and Eve were never married He would not have used them as the original example. Therefore, I fully believe that Jesus’ choice of words here clearly says that God considered them married.

    I do agree with all the ideas you have presented in your post. They’re really convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are very short for newbies. Could you please extend them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.

    • Annette Vincent says:

      Hi Santana,
      Thanks for visiting my site. I appreciate your encouragement and your constructive comment. I appreciate your eagerness to soak in God’s truths in large chunks, but not every reader has a large amount of time they wish to spend on one source. The writing I do is done on a daily basis and it takes me several hours to get my thoughts across clearly. I write until I feel a release in my spirit that the topic is complete. Sometimes that works out to short posts and sometimes they are quite lengthy. I welcome you to read more than one post if you are looking to spend more time in His word. I would also suggest that you journal on what you find in the scripture of the day and what you thought about the post. I believe that would be more life changing than me simply extending what I’m writing. God’s word is personal and if you only read what others write you are limited in how deeply it can work in your life.
      Thank you again for being a faithful reader. I look forward to you sharing the insights and workings you have gained from reading what I post. Especially how God is working in your life. Please feel free to join in anytime.

  98. Stepanie says:

    First of all I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Many thanks!

    • Annette Vincent says:

      Thanks for visiting my site. I can certainly identify with your issue. One of the things that helps me on this site specifically is going through the comments and responding to EVERY ONE of them that look like a real person took the time to write them. I do get ones that look like they are generated by a “spam machine” and I simply delete those. But listening to my readers helps me get my mind on the day’s journey. Knowing there is someone out there who actually wants and sometimes needs to hear what God chooses to put through my fingers is awe inspiring! The second thing I do is look at the scripture for the day, then go back and read all the blog articles that used that same theme from the other gospels. Next I pray and ask God to speak to my heart and mind so I can hear what HE has to say to me and anyone else looking in for that day.
      Often I don’t know where things are going to end up when I start and I simply go where the Spirit leads me. Sometimes for me, just writing the first paragraph breaks the barrier and things begin to flow.
      That is my process for my journal/blog anyway. On other writing activities I find that simply creating an outline helps me organize and center my mind on my topic. I hope this helps you. Good luck in your writing! Please join in again anytime. I appreciate your honest question.
