In the realm of man, language is not universal because in even the most similar of languages, what means something positive in one, might stand for something rather uncomfortable in the other. Language is therefore best interpreted in context.
The centurion we encounter today mentioned that He had authority and this he expressed thus:
"For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it."
My mind was cast to the scene in the Gospel when Peter saw Jesus walking on water and expressed the desire to also do the same if indeed Jesus was who he claimed to be. To this request, Jesus responded ‘COME‘. Peter thus also began walking, not on the waters of the sea, but on the word ‘COME’; which Jesus had spoken(Mt 28:22-33)
Faith in that word alone had the capacity to bear his whole body weight. So if you wonder if one word from the mouth of the LORD isn’t enough to change the course of your life and destiny, think again. One word is all it takes because in the language of God, “GO, COME, and DO THIS” aren’t just invitations, they are guarantees.
