When was the last time your faith took the witness stand? I think about the centurion in Matthew 8:5-13 Capernaum who came to Jesus pleading with him for his servant who was sick of the palsy, grieviously tormented. After he presented his case, Jesus said to him I will come and heal him. The centurion was not a church goer and he had no status as being a member of Jesus disciples,nor did he sat on any boards and certainly wasn't apart of the sanhedrin sect, but he understood one thing, the operation of the principle of authority in the Kingdom.
He said to Jesus, "I am not worthy that you should come under my roof, but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. He stepped to Jesus with undeniable faith, as believers we should always look in the face of a no win situation; and look to the master and say, speak the word only! Jesus was so amazed that he said, "Verily i say unto you, I have not found so great faith no, not in Israel.
And I say unto you that many shall come from the east and the west and shall sit down with Abraham, Issac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. but the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Here is a unbeliever who understand authority and he displayed more faith in God than the children of the kingdom.
So look the children will miss out from unbelief, but one with the attitude of the centurion will sit in the kingdom of heaven. Unbelief is dangerous it opens the gate to the entry into hell. The children of the kingdom which means you and I and others who operate outside of belief is sinning and it displeases God.
