THE STORY OF JESUS: Matthew 27:54-56
“Surely he was the Son of God!” (Matthew 27:56)
There is something remarkable about Jesus, in life and in death.
Why were so many people impacted by this nobody from Nazareth?
Why did He agitate those in power, and inspire those in poverty?
How did He generate a world-changing movement, considering He died such an ignoble death?
Even Roman guards sensed the supernatural qualities of His life and death.
We need to pay close attention to Jesus, to how He lived and how He died.
I am convinced that Jesus stands apart from every other human that ever lived.
As a Jesus follower, my loyalty is to Jesus first, and only secondarily the church.
If you focus on the church, you will see weakness, failure, hypocrisy, sin.
But the church is NOT the hope of the world, Jesus is, and He is worth knowing.
Don’t let bad experiences with christians hinder you from appreciating Jesus.
Take your eyes away from the religious people at the foot of the cross… look at Jesus!
If we knew the real Jesus, not just the stained glass ‘churchified’ view of Jesus.
If we were impacted by His love, His grace, and His truth, we would join the centurion!
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, when I think about You, about how You lived and how You died, I cannot help but declare, truly You are the Son of God!
