1. "Sticks and stones my break my bones but words will never hurt me." Have you ever heard this before? Is it true or false? Why? 
  2. Read Luke 7:1-2. What is a centurion and why was it significant that he was asking for Jesus' help to heal his servant?
  3. Read Luke 7:3-7. Why was the centurion "good" in the eyes of the Jewish leaders? What was the centurion's response and why did he respond this way? 
  4. Pastor Danny said that "when we encounter the living God, our response is confession and faith." What does this mean and what was the evidence of this in the centurion?
  5. The centurion says, "Just say the word, and my servant will be healed." Why did this phrase amaze Jesus? How does the power of words change reality? 
  6. Jesus' words, "It is Finished" is a proclamation for all time. How does this phrase impact how we live and how we see ourselves and others?
