"We find grace through faith" by: Caleb Gibson

   What is the secret to great faith? We can understand this by two stories in the Bible.    
   A centurion came up to Jesus saying, “Lord, my servant is lying paralyzed at home, fearfully tormented…say the word, and my servant will be healed... (Matt. 8:6-8).    
   The Bible explains, Jesus marveled when He heard this and said, “Truly I say to you, I have not found such great faith with anyone in Israel.” (Matt. 8:10).   
   Many people see the centurion and think that he had, “great faith” because he was in the Roman Army and would have understood authority. The problem with this theory is that there is another person who had “great faith” and was nothing like a soldier.    
   Jesus came across only two people whom He called “great faith,” one was a centurion and the other was a homemaker.
