MATTHEW 8:5 – 11

 IMG 0533BIG

“LORD, I AM NOT WORTHY TO HAVE YOU ENTER UNDER MY ROOF; ONLY SAY THE WORD AND MY SERVANT WILL BE HEALED.” 

In the sports MMA (Mixed Martial Arts), submission to an opponent is a defeat.

The centurion, whose servant is sick, petitions for healing from Jesus.

In command of hundred soldiers, He is used to say words of command and they obey for they are under authority.

This time, He submits himself to the authority of Jesus. “Only say the word and my servant will be healed.” He believes in the power of the words of Jesus. Thus, his servant is healed and his petition is satisfied.

When we submit ourselves to the authority of Jesus and believe in the power of His word, our petitions will surely be granted.

In MMA (Making A Meaningful Advent), submission to Jesus is VICTORY!
