Let God....

Matthew 8:5 Now when Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, pleading with Him,

6 saying, “Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, dreadfully tormented.”

7 And Jesus said to him, “I will come and heal him.”

We typically read of centurions in the bible in a positive light. He comes to Jesus desprate and beyond himself. He respects Jesus. His servant is home. He cares about his fellowman. He understands authority, and knows Jesus has it. Jesus says He will come to him. Jesus is approachable & goes out of the way to minister. Its our pride and flesh that pleads with Jesus not to do so because we cant comprehend such love that has no strings attached to His goodness. I must let go and allow the LORD to minister to and thru me. Sounds easy, but is very difficult. I must come to the place where I know I have nothing to offer, nothing to trade, nothing to give in exchange for His gifts.
