When you hear the statement: “Have faith,” does your mind grasp what that really means?  Or have you heard it so many times, you just nod, and go with the flow, knowing that you’re supposed to understand “faith?”  In Luke’s gospel, chapter seven, we have one of the “miracle stories” where faith is on display.  We can learn the central meaning, the central focus, of faith from the example of a military man who desperately needed Jesus’ help. Jesus responds to this man’s faith with a remarkable miracle.
