Scripture Faith in God
And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion beseeching him, and saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.
The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed.
For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.
When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.

A teaching to be left for generations to follow. What was this faith that was not understood in all of Israel?

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR EXPERIENCES YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE, PLEASE LEAVE YOUR COMMENTS BELOW.
Before leaving I have two appeals:
Firstly; It is my desire for those who are not saved, to be saved. That is the mission of this ministry; that you know Jesus. If you have not received Jesus in your life it is my desire that you know Jesus and ask him to come into your life, pray and seek a Church that will worship,support your faith and increase by knowledge in Jesus Christ.
Secondly; This is a ministry to advance the Kingdom of God by reaching out to those by word and deed, who do not know the Kingdom of God is at hand.
Your charitable contribution would be sharing this message for others to hear.
