When the centurion and those who were with him, keeping watch over Jesus, saw the earthquake and what took place, they were filled with awe and said, “Truly this was the Son of God!” There were also many women there, looking on from a distance, who had followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering to him, among whom were Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James and Joseph and the mother of the sons of Zebedee. – Matthew 27:54-56 (NLT)
The centurion sees to the death of Jesus and the amazing events (i.e., the darkness covering the whole land, the earthquake, and Jesus’ love and grace from the cross) surrounding it to show him that Jesus was someone unique, the Son of God. It is important to have “aha” moments in our lives to point us to Jesus. But there are also everyday evidences such as the majesty of nature, the laugh of an infant, the joy of connecting with others, etc. The aha moments connect us with God profoundly and securely but the everyday blessings we see are the glue that hold us to him when dark and troubling times overtake us.
Why do you believe in Jesus? What evidence do you have he exists?
