Healing one he never met...

Proper 4, Year C, RCL
Luke 7:1-10

What's most amazing to me is that the Centurion, a man with SO MUCH power and authority, was advocating for someone who, in that culture, had absolutely zero power. Who knows. Maybe that is why Jesus was so willing to heal the slave.

Living a life that puts faith in Jesus also means making room for seeking a community to be a part of, and it means accepting people the way Jesus accepted the Centurion: without condition.
