Am I Under Authority?
Jesus is amazed when we have a right account of ourselves, understand and have faith in His authority as Messiah.
1.The elders of the Jews had it wrong when they thought that this centurion â€˜deservedâ€™ Jesusâ€™ healing for his servant.
The Centurion understood correctly that he did not even deserve to have Jesus come to him. (verses 6 & 7)
*This centurion put himself under Messiah Jesusâ€™ authority - submitted!
II Corinthians 1:20
2.Jesus was amazed that this centurion (non-Jew) not only understood but was also exercising (trusting) His authority.
