Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

A Certain Centurian

Before I became a Christian, I’m sure that most of my friends thought well of me. I was a fine and friendly young businessman. We tend to think well of our friends. This was the case in Luke chapter 7 when some people spoke of a certain centurion. They said that Jesus should heal this man's servant because the centurion was worthy (verse 4). He was a Roman and yet he loved the Jews, and he had even built them a synagogue. But the centurion knew better. When he heard that Jesus was coming to his house, he sent friends ahead to tell Him something he felt was of great importance. Listen to his words: “I’m not worthy . . .” (verse 7). That’s the only attitude in which any sinner can receive the Savior.
