KEY SCRIPTURE Matthew 27:54 KJV “Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.”
The centurion and those present at the death of Jesus testified that, indeed He is the Son of God. They came to this conclusion after being witnesses to all that happened after he died. They saw the whole earth go dark, the earthquake and the words Jesus said as He hanged on the cross. These people came to that solid conclusion that He is the Son of God, as He testified. There are so many evidences that shows that Jesus is the Son of God.
The Lord Jesus made certain statements that no one ever spoke that way.
He said I am the resurrection and the life (John 11:25). He also said He is the way the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father, but through Him. (John 14:6) He even said I am the light of the world. John 9:5. All these are very serious statements. There were many more such statements that He said about Himself. A person saying such things should either be a liar, a lunatic or the Lord of glory. He is never a liar because His words have proven to be very true, in every form of it. He can’t be a lunatic, because many lunatics have been healed in His name. Since the first two are not possible then He is the Lord of glory.
Jesus’ resurrection also reveals He is the anointed Son of God. Rom 1:4 KJV ‘And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead: “
The witness of the apostles was on the fact that Jesus died but is resurrected. Almost all of them but John the beloved died terrible deaths, through persecution. All on the testimony that Jesus rose from the grave, and that they saw and fellowshipped with Him.
The conversion of Apostle Paul, who opposed, persecuted and made havoc of the church. A strong defender of the law suddenly was transformed and started talking about the grace of God. Apostle Paul also died a martyred death with the testimony that He also met the resurrected Christ.
In the light of these evidences, would you join the Roman centurion to say that Jesus is the Lord of my life?
THOUGHT: YOUR ABILITY TO PROOF JESUS IS ALIVE, IS TO SURRENDER TO HIM.
