Though this military man was a non-Jew, he knew the power of Jesus. He had heard of and no doubt seen His works. He believed Jesus could heal his servant. He also understood authority and the power behind one's words.
What if we today had such faith? What if we really believed in the Person of Christ and the power His words could wield in our lives. What if we were living our faith as folks did in the Gospels and the Book of Acts? What if we expected Jesus to act in our lives and really believed it? What if we gave Him such control and authority?
How would our lives be different?
