Now when He concluded all His sayings in the hearing of the people, He entered Capernaum. And a certain centurion’s servant, who was dear to him, was sick and ready to die. So when he heard about Jesus, he sent elders of the Jews to Him, pleading with Him to come and heal his servant. Luke 7:1-3
A life was in the balance. Someone was at the point of death, someone heard about Jesus, and there was life instead of death. This scenario plays out over and over all across the earth every day. Multitudes are dead in their transgressions and sin, the enemy of their souls patiently waiting for their last day to claim his prize. But then someone comes with the message of the gospel…..the good news that instead of death, you can have life through Jesus, abundant and eternal. And to those who receive Him, the power of death is broken!
But someone must go. Someone must tell. Somewhere around you today, a life is in the balance.
