Now when Jesus heard this, He marveled, and said to those who were following, "Truly I say to you, I have not found such great faith with anyone in Israel. 11 "And I say to you, that many shall come from east and west, and recline at the table with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven; 12 but the sons of the kingdom shall be cast out into the outer darkness; in that place there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth." 13 And Jesus said to the centurion, "Go your way; let it be done to you as you have believed." And the servant was healed that very hour." Matthew 8:10-13 (NAS)

Later on it would be clearer to the Israelites (the Jews) that the Gentiles* would also be able to inherit the kingdom of heaven. 

* Gentile is a word for all people who are not of the children of Israel (e.g., Romans, Greeks...anyone who is not of Jewish descent).

By Faith:  The Centurion's Servant Was Healed (Matthew 8:10-13)
Faith is the assurance of things hoped for...
the conviction of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1

1. What is the thing hoped for...or is not seen? What Is The Thing Hoped For: 
That the Centurion's servant who was paralyzed would be healed.
2. What is man's part, if any? Nothing, other than asking Jesus for the healing.  Jesus did not ask the Centurion to do anything.
3. What is God's part? Jesus healed the servant.
4. How did the Centurion have this assurance and conviction that God could heal his servant with just speaking it?
  1. Understand the thing hoped for...or the thing not seen.
  2. Hear God's word (Faith comes by hearing...and hearing by the word of Christ.  Romans 10:17) to understand God's power and faithfulness to His promises.
  3. Do your part, if any.

  4. Trust God that He has done what He has said...and/or that He will do what He promises.

  5. Pray that God will help increase your belief and faith (Luke 17:5, Mark 9:23-24) and give you wisdom (James 1:5).
