#158 - Walking a Tightrope w/ Sen. Heather Cloud (LA-28)

”When Jesus entered the village of Capernaum, a captain in the Roman army approached him, asking for a miracle. “Lord,” he said, “I have a son who is lying in my home, paralyzed and suffering terribly.” Jesus responded, “I will go with you and heal him.” But the Roman officer interjected, “Lord, who am I to have you come into my house? I understand your authority, for I too am a man who walks under authority and have authority over soldiers who serve under me. I can tell one to go and he’ll go, and another to come and he’ll come. I command my servants and they’ll do whatever I ask. So I know that all you need to do is to stand here and command healing over my son and he will be instantly healed.” Jesus was astonished when he heard this and said to those who were following him, “He has greater faith than anyone I’ve encountered in Israel!“

This is a stunning example of how powerful the words of Jesus are. He walked in a level of power and authority that caused sickness, death and demons to flee. And He has delegated that power to us, as His co-heirs through His death and resurrection. Let this passage encourage you to boldly use the words of the Lord, the words of Scripture to be part of bringing the Kingdom of Heaven to Earth. We pray as part of the Lord’s Prayer - Lord, Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. And we should pray that way as Jesus taught. But we are also commanded to be part of making that happen. How is His Kingdom expanded in the Earth? When we lay down our own lives, forsaking the earthly kingdom that we were born into and receive citizenship in the Kingdom of God as His children, through repentance and belief in Jesus. How is His will done on Earth? If we follow His example and His instruction.
