THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: There was a Roman centurion who met Jesus, went to Him, in fact, to ask Jesus to heal his servant. Jesus was willing to go and heal the servant, but the centurion expressed that he knew Jesus had authority in the situation such that all He had to do was speak the word. Jesus’ response in Matthew 8:10, “Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!” is amazing. Jesus makes the point that this centurion was more faithful than even the people of God. It may be that this centurion is the same one who was at the cross in Matthew 27:54. It also may be that he is Cornelius whom we see in Acts 10. Either way, this centurion was unusual. He was a Gentile, a heathen; but he believed in Jesus when Jesus’ own sheep did not. Sometimes we see people outside the church or those who profess faith who have not obeyed the gospel who show greater decency, and maybe faith, than we see in the church. We do not want to become so complacent as God’s chosen people that others outside put us to shame with their actions and beliefs. We must strive to have the utmost faith because we know that Jesus died for us. Let us have the faith of the centurion and seek to help those good people outside come into the truth.
If you are not a Christian (see the ABOUT YOU page), becoming a follower of Christ is the most important decision you will ever make. The Susquehanna church of Christ is a group of individuals who seek to worship God together according to His will, revealed to us in His word, the Bible. We believe that Bible study will lead us into greater understanding of what God wants of us. Though lots of denominations will tell you they teach the truth of God’s word, they cannot all be right when they teach doctrines that contradict each other. We invite you to consider the material you find here, and most importantly, weigh it against what is found in the scriptures. Our hope and prayer is that you will find the information here to be not only of benefit but also of truth. If we can be of help in any way in your search, please contact me. One more thing. Susquehanna church of Christ is a non-denominational church. You will notice that the “c” in church is not capitalized. The reason is that it is a description not a title or proper name. We are simply members of the church which Jesus built, Matthew 16:18. If you are a Christian, we hope the material here will be of benefit to you and will stimulate your thinking. If there is any way in which we may be of help, please contact me. Sincerely, Scott Long firstname.lastname@example.org
