Where does true authority come from?

Message: The gospel according to Luke

Text: Luke 7:1-10

The center of this story is not the one needing healing, but the one interceding to Jesus for help for someone needing healing.

A life that changes other lives

3 opinions of this centurion:

1. 7:4 He is worthy

2. 7:6-7 I am not worthy

3. 7:9 Jesus marveled at him

(Mark 6)

“Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it’s thinking of yourself less.”

7:7-8 The centurion had a clear/true understanding of who he was and who Jesus was.

Authority: under authority therefore having authority (under authority and in authority) Being led, therefore fit to lead.

Position/title is not the same as influence.

Your relationship with Jesus affects all other relationships...and everything else.
