Homily for July 1, 2017
The question Abraham’s visitors asked when Sarah laughed at the possibility of her having a child in her old age is worth reflecting upon. The truth is that by the way we think, we tend to assume God could have certain limitations. We tend to imagine God to be just like us and that certain things could be hard for him.
Dear friends, there is absolutely nothing beyond the reach of God. Nothing is too hard for God. God is not limited by time, space or anything you can think of. And guess what? The Centurion in our Gospel passage this morning knew this.
Hence, the Centurion would not allow Jesus come to his house because he knew Jesus was not limited by time or space. He simply asked Jesus to issue a command that it would be done.
Like the case of the Leper we saw yesterday, the Centurion teaches us to deepen our faith in the Power of God because indeed, there is nothing too hard for God to do.
Let us Pray: Lord Jesus, only say your word, and my soul shall be healed. Amen.
It is well with you.
God bless you.
