Jesus is the Lord who visits His people with compassion and power to give life.
Believe in the worthiness and authority of the Lord Jesus just as this Gentile soldier did.
Build your life on the solid rock by both hearing and doing what Christ the Lord teaches.
To produce good fruit and bring forth good in your life, your heart needs to be made good.
To lead others to Christ you must have clear sight of Him and live without blinding hypocrisy.
Christ commands you as his disciples to treat those who mistreat you with love, and so reflect the mercy of your Heavenly Father.
God's curse rests on all who seek from this world the blessing he alone can provide.
When the world rejects you for Christ's sake, rejoice because heaven receives you!
