Jesus Christ has absolute power to save us

"For I too am a person subject to authority, with soldiers subject to me. And I say to one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and to another, ‘Come here,’ and he comes; and to my slave, ‘Do this,’ and he does it."  (Luke 7:8)

The centurion indicates from the above scripture that he understands the principle of authority and power.  Just as the centurion has learned to obey his superiors, he expects those under him to obey him.  From this premise, he applies the principle from what he knows intuitively about the person of Jesus.  Jesus embodies in His person the ultimate authority and power over creation.  His name is Jesus.  It says what it is and it does what it says.

Jesus Christ has the absolute power to save us from any situation.
"Therefore, he is always able to save those who approach God through him, since he lives forever to make intercession for them."  (Hebrews 7: 25)
