Matthew 8:10 - When Jesus heard this, he was amazed. Turning to those who were following him, he said, "I tell you the truth, I haven't seen faith like this in all Israel!
Read - Matthew 8:5–13; Luke 7:1–
The faith of the centurion amazed Jesus. In a faithless world, true faith in God through Christ will always stand out…to God and to others.

This Roman Officer understood authority from a military perspective and he simply applied that to who Jesus was…if Jesus was God then it stood to reason that He had Spiritual Authority over this situation even from distance. It is this Spiritual Authority that we place our faith in knowing that Jesus can Mend us from the Marring of Sin and that He wants to save us as we place our faith in Him.
