  • Submit to spiritual authority

    “Without faith it is impossible to please him,” proclaims the Bible in the 11th chapter of Hebrews. These words should penetrate all of our hearts as I would be the first to admit that the measure of faith that God has so graciously given to me could stand to be built upon. However, there is a particular area in our lives in which God has purposed for our faith to grow, and that can be found in the words spoken by the Centurion of Matthew 8:5-10.
