Refletindo o Evangelho
Centurion, in whose house an observant Jew of the law could not enter, was the head of a hundred soldiers in the service of the Romans. One of them comes up to Jesus and asks him the cure of your employee. Jesus says that going to his house. However, noting the high level of faith of the Centurion, Jesus praises. Stands out as exemplary figure: "In Israel have not found anyone who had so much faith." The patient restores health, Jesus, and announces that foreigners will provide better reception to the project of God. Jesus follows doing wonders: healing the mother-in-law of Peter and, at dusk, cure all patients submitted, in addition to expel many demons. The Kingdom of God is manifested in Jesus, who "took our infirmities and bore our diseases." Jesus is amazed at the faith that man, because those who were of that religion does not have expressed such faith, expressing a faith with such greatness, and that man Pagan, deleted, your faith and trust; He believed that Jesus could do something for your employee. Therefore, the employee was cured because of the faith of your boss. Faith needs to be intertwined with humility, because, with the arrogance, we didn't get anything, we didn't get to God. With the arrogance, we showed that we're bad, that everything we can and so on. But when we do small, when we put ourselves under the authority of Jesus, all He can do for us!
Jesus, eu creio que a minha fé é alimentada por uma profunda humildade de saber que Deus tudo pode, e em minha miséria dependo d’Ele.
Jesus, I believe that my faith is nourished by a deep humility to know that everything God can, and in my misery I depend on him.
