As we read about Jesus, the centurion and the centurion's servant, we learn about love, faith and hope - the love of Jesus, the faith of the centurion and hope for the centurion's servant.
(1) The love of Jesus
In Jesus' miracles of healing, we see love. It is the greatest love of all. It is the love of God. Jesus loved the centurion. Jesus loved the centurion's servant. He loves you. He loves me. He loves us with a perfect love. He loves us with an everlasting love. His love changes us. We see this in the story the centurion and his servant. This is a story which invites us to be changed by the love of Jesus.
