He is worthy

Luke 7:4”When they came to Jesus, they earnestly implored Him, saying, "He is worthy for You to grant this to him…”


The above appreciation of the disciples is about the ‘Roman Centurion’ who had whole-hearted faith in Jesus and also his passion for Christ was shown in his deeds, read verse 5,” he loves our nation and it was he who built us our synagogue." This is wow love that this Roman Centurion had for Jesus, look what Jesus did, when he heard this report, verse 6” Jesus was on his way to the house of the Roman Centurion..”  He further goes on to say, ‘ Jesus, I am not worthy for your personal visit, just say the Word that’s enough boss…’  Again he wowed Jesus, that Jesus was floored by this kind of love that He was marveled and said, “"I say to you, not even among my own people, have I found such great faith."  This is a great report by Jesus!

I want to just concentrate on the statement of the disciples about the Roman Centurion, ‘he is worthy’ today.  Many camouflage their laziness with the statement, ‘despite my carelessness and laziness, God’s grace sustains me.’ These lazy people bask under the grace of God forever in their life, without making/taking any efforts to change their life and move forward to the next level, the line between grace and lazy is rather thin…..People love to call themselves lizards, cockroaches and caterpillars and say that they are unworthy in the eyes of God and think they are being humble but this is a lie of the devil, we need to move in our spiritual life like Apostle Paul and boldly ‘be able’ to tell people ‘imitate me, read…

 

 

  • 1 Corinthians 11:1” And you should imitate me, just as I imitate Christ.”
  • Philippians 3:17- Join one another in following my example, brothers, and carefully observe those who walk according to the pattern we set for you.
  • 1 Thessalonians 1:6 - And you became imitators of us and of the Lord when you welcomed the message with the joy of the Holy Spirit, in spite of your great suffering.

People might call you arrogant and boisterous, that’s alright, but you be confident in God and walk like Christ, so that people have a live example in you.  Amen.  This is a ‘MUST’ today in Sunday classes, Youth Meeting, Women’s gathering, Men’s fellowship, Teen fellowship, Prayer seminars, Worship Festivals, Crusades and what not; there is an urgent need for true examples, are you listening?
