"The Final Say"
And Jesus said to him, "I will come and heal him."
The centurion answered and said, "Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed.
For I am a man under authority having soldiers under me. And I say to this one, 'Go,' and He goes; and to another, 'Come,' and he comes; and to my servant, 'Do this,' and he does it."
When Jesus heard it, He marveled, and said to those who followed, "Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!"
"And I say to you that many will come from east and west, and sit down with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven.
But the sons of the kingdom will be cast out into outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth."
Then Jesus said to the centurion, "Go your way; and as you have believed, so let it be done for you." And his servant was healed that same hour. Matthew 8:5-13
As I read through this account of the centurion soldier today I felt led to ask you this question, "Do you, like this centurion, understand that Jesus has the final say? Do you get that He is the ultimate authority and that at His Word every sickness and disease is defeated? If the answer is yes than ...
At this very hour ... "Go your way; as you have believed, so let it be done for you!"
HIS WORDS not mine and He does get the final say!
