Topic: God’s Kind of Love

Matthew 8:9-10, “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 marveled and said to them, “Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.”Text: Matthew 8:5-13, Luke 7:1-10

There were only two things in all of scripture that caused Jesus to marvel. They were (1) the CCenturiCenturion’sand(2) the JJews’unbelief (Mk. 6:6). A faith that made Jesus, who is the author and finisher of our faith, marvel is worth examining. This centuriCenturioned that the spoken Word of Jesus was sufficient to produce his miracle. He didn’t need Jesus to come to his house. He had faith in Jesus. Therefore, we can see that the person who believes the written Word of God operates in a much higher form of faith than those who require additional proof. Compare this ccenturiCenturion with Thomas’s” little” faith in John 20:24-29!

Thomas refused to believe what he couldn’t see or feel. God gave us our five senses, which are necessary to help us function in this life. But if we do not renew our minds to acknowledge the limits of the five senses, they will keep us from believing. Faith can perceive things that the senses cannot (Hebrews 11:1).

The type of faith that Thomas operated on was a human or natural faith that was based on what he could see. Jesus said there was a more incredible blessing to be obtained. That more incredible blessing comes from using a supernatural, God-kind faith based only on the Word.

Jesus and God are one (Jn 1:1, 14). Believing God is not just putting your trust in some printed words on the pages of a book we call the Bible. There is much more involved. It is a relationship with a person, the person behind the words. Get to know Him through His Word.
