Sermon Notes:
In the Gospel of Matthew, chapters 8-9, he shows fourteen distinct ways that Jesus showed His authority. These chapters come directly after the Sermon on the Mount where Jesus speaks and teaches the crowds with authority, so much so that they were amazed. Matthew shows us that it is not only Jesus words that have authority, but also His life in how He responds to every situation with complete confidence and grace.
In this story today we learn of a centurion (a Roman military figure that had at least a hundred soldiers under his own Authority), come to Jesus and ask for help. For us, this would be like asking someone you completed disagree, or someone you are sure would not help you, for assistance.
