What Is Your Confession About Jesus?
The breastplate that covered his heart bore the seal of his master, Caesar.
He felt pride in commanding a hundred elite Roman soldiers. The
centurion looked at the crosses and stood vigil as death reduced them
to a mass of lifeless flesh. Yet one victim seemed unlike any the veteran
soldier had ever seen. This Man didn't fight as the others had. Nor
did He beg or curse, condemn or plead for mercy. In fact, He did
something that tore at the centurion's heart.
In all his career, only Jesus had ever offered the centurion mercy. Even
though he stood for everything that put Christ on that cross, Jesus
forgave him. In that moment, he could utter only one confession:
"Truly this man was the Son of God!"
Two thousand years later, people still look upon Jesus, the resurrected Son
of God. What is your confession about Him?
