Simplified Sunday resource to be taught by parents at home during lockdown
There are many times when we feel that we are not in control. In those moments we find out where our faith truly lies. Do we depend on our own ability to fix things, or are we trusting someone else to be in charge. The powerful centurion had great faith – not in his own ability to control things, but in Jesus. The outsider, the enemy of Israel, acknowledged his unworthiness and dependence on Jesus. We need to do the same. This is great faith - not looking great but depending greatly on Jesus. Only when we understand the complete rule and power of Christ will we be able to fully depend on him.
