THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MATTHEW - Chapter 8 - Verse 8

Verse 8. I am not worthy, etc. This was an expression of great humility. It refers doubtless to his view of his personal unworthiness, and not merely to the fact that he was a Gentile. It was the expression of a humble spirit; a conviction of the great dignity and power of the Saviour, and a belief that he was so unlike him, that he was not fit that the Son of God should come into his dwelling. So every truly penitent sinner feels—a feeling which is appropriate when he comes to Christ.

{w} "not worthy" Ps 10:17; Lu 15:19,21

{x} "the word only" Ps 33:9; 107:20
