When Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, asking for help. “Lord,” he said, “my servant lies at home paralyzed and in terrible suffering.” Jesus said to him, “I will go and heal him.” The centurion replied, “Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed. For I myself am a man under authority with soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.” When Jesus heard this, he was astonished and said to those following him, “I tell you the truth I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith.” (Matthew 8:5-10)
Five catalysts for growing faith.
a. This is not a list that you do.
b. This is not a list that’s found verbatim in the Bible.
c. There may be others.
1. Practical teaching.
2. Private disciplines.
3. Personal ministry.
4. Providential relationships.
5. Pivotal circumstances.
Because the greater the faith, the greater the relationship, the stronger the relationship, the more intimacy you have with your heavenly Father, and that’s His heart’s desire and it always has been.
