• Mark 15:39

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.

He forgave.

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?
