Jesus can help.

WEEK 5: Help

Day 5

Luke 7:8-9
I know this because I am under the authority of my superior officers, and I have authority over my soldiers. I only need to say, ‘Go,’ and they go, or ‘Come,’ and they come. And if I say to my slaves, ‘Do this,’ they do it.” When Jesus heard this, he was amazed. Turning to the crowd that was following him, he said, “I tell you, I haven’t seen faith like this in all Israel!”


The Roman solider did not go to Jesus, and he did not expect Jesus to come to him. The solider knew he did not need to be present to have his orders carried out, so if he could do it, he certainly knew that Jesus could! Jesus could heal the slave without even being there.
 
The solider did not grow up knowing a loving God. Still, he placed his faith in Jesus and asked for the help he knew only God could deliver. This is why Jesus marveled at the faith of the Roman.
 
Jesus has the power to help you, no matter who or where you are. Just place your faith in Him and go to Him in humility–and He will prove it!
