Roman presense
In Matthew 8:5-13, Jesus didn`t refuse helping the Roman soldier, even though Jesus strictly focused on the Jewish people in his mission. Maybe this is because Jesus rarely if ever refused anyone. And secondly it might be because Jesus knew the Roman army very well as he had grown up with the army around and about. He was probably quite happy to interact with them, as most were in his day. But what stands out is that the Roman gave Jesus the power. In that he begged and not ordered Jesus to help him.

JESUS with the Military Leader
When JESUS heard the military leader speak HE knew that he was speaking eith faith because he adimitted his faults or his ways to JESUS.   And the leader felt that he was not worth for JESUS to enter his house but that didn't stop his faith.

Jesus knows

Jesus knows every man's heart and when the centurion showed his respect to Jesus "Lord, I am not worthy to have You come under my roof", Christ was amazed that his faith was beyond his authority to command soldiers under him.

I know a religion who claims witnesses for God that teaches military has no part in God's kingdom. Well, they don't belive this faith when i tell them.

Possible compassion of the Centurion
I`ve not noticed how compassionate the Centurion was for his servant. He could have got another servant to go to Jesus. But he went himself. Maybe he wanted to see Jesus. Maybe he wanted to find something of his that Jesus could heal. Probably not, because Jesus saw the faith in him. Either 1. the Centurion had a close friendship with the servant and wanted to find a doctor or healer, OR 2. there was no one else to go to Jesus, OR 3. he wanted to meet Jesus. All three could be the case, but the most important thing is that he urgently appealed to Jesus and had faith in Jesus.

As he entered Caper'na-um, a centurion came forward to him, beseeching him and saying, "Lord, my servant is lying paralyzed at home, in terrible distress." And he said to him, "I will come and heal him." But the centurion answered him, "Lord, I am not worthy to have you come under my roof; but only say the word, and my servant will be healed. For I am a man under authority, with soldiers under me; and I say to one, 'Go,' and he goes, and to another, 'Come,' and he comes, and to my slave, 'Do this,' and he does it." When Jesus heard him, he marveled, and said to those who followed him, "Truly, I say to you, not even in Israel have I found such faith. I tell you, many will come from east and west and sit at table with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven, while the sons of the kingdom will be thrown into the outer darkness; there men will weep and gnash their teeth." And to the centurion Jesus said, "Go; be it done for you as you have believed." And the servant was healed at that very moment. ( Matthew 8:5-13)
