The centurion’s interactions with Jesus give us a model for saving faith:
- He humbly approaches Jesus, not presuming the he is entitled to anything but believing that Jesus is able to save his servant;
- He asks Jesus to do something he cannot do for himself.
That’s what saving faith is: believing that the Lord is able to save, understanding that we can’t save ourselves, knowing that we don’t deserve mercy, but humbly asking for it anyway.
Jesus will not turn anyone away who humbly asks for mercy.
If you have asked the Lord to save you, be assured: the Lord will never turn his back on you.
If you haven’t asked him, why haven’t you?
