It was the faith of the centurion, the child’s father that brought healing. In this miracle we see faith as having a social dimension. I am sure there were many situations of his own that the centurion would have liked to discuss with Jesus.  But his prime concern was not himself but the situation of his servant. In this story we are reminded of the need for faith in our life as followers of Jesus.  Also, our faith is not something just for ourselves. But through our faith we can bring others closer to Jesus. Through our faith we can bring healing.
