TEXT: Matthew 8:5-13

After Jesus clearly stated that He would come and heal the centurion’s servant, one might think that He would be offended when the centurion rejected that offer. You or I might have thought, ‘I just offered to come to your house and heal your servant and now you think you can place demands on me — such as ‘speak the word only.'” But Jesus does not react that way. Instead, Matthew records that He ‘marvelled.’ The word ‘marvel’ means to wonder at or to have in admiration. Jesus marvelled so much that He turned about to the crowd and said, “Verily [truly], I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.”
