What information about this servant can we glean from the biblical account? What was his history, what was he like, what happened to him? What lessons can we learn from his story? In what ways do our lives parallel his? Let’s take this passage apart and find out what it says to us. [A sermon preached by Dr. Arnold Lastinger. Published with permission.]

Sermon notes: Jesus heals a Roman Centurion’s Servant

In the weeks that passed by, I shared with you Jesus’ “Sermon on the Mount.” For the past 24 years, I have listened to many Preachers and preached many sermons myself. But none of those preachers or myself ever concluded a sermon with an unexpected warning like Jesus gave in his sermon on the mount. His exact words were,

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!” (Matthew 7:21-23)
