The centurion correctly identifies Jesus as the Son of God. It must have shocked others who were listening. The extraordinary truth of who Jesus is can often be shown to us in the most unlikely ways.

When you think about Jesus, how would you describe him? The way we view him can greatly impact the way we interact with him.

We’ll look at this more closely in a moment, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t first express my gratitude for your partnership with God Centered Life. With your help, we can continue providing messages and resources that help others find Jesus Christ.

The book of Mark is primarily concerned with the identity of Jesus and with who we are to be in response. This is the focus of our series this month, “The Gospel of Jesus.”

The people in Jesus’ time knew he would come as King, but they had a wrong idea of what his kingship would be like. They were expecting a military king who would save them from their Roman oppressors. But his kingship was truly revealed at the cross.

The religious leaders of the day had other words for him: blasphemer, demon-possessed. They completely disregarded his heart of love and the miracles that demonstrated his deity.

Who finally gets it right? One of those Romans—a centurion of all people!

Jesus uttered a loud cry and breathed his last. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two ... And when the centurion ... saw that in this way he breathed his last, he said, “Truly this man was the Son of God!” (Mark 15:37-39, ESV)

The centurion correctly identifies Jesus as the Son of God. It must have shocked others who were listening. The extraordinary truth of who Jesus is can often be shown to us in the most unlikely ways.

To learn more of the truth about Jesus, I hope you’ll join me either online or on the radio. Would you also consider a gift in support of this ministry? With your help, many more will encounter Christ and be equipped for effective, God-centered lives.

In thanks for your gift of any amount this month, I’d like to send you Rethinking Sexuality by Dr. Juli Slattery. Instead of arguing with the world, we can be equipped to share the love and grace of Jesus as we encounter the pain of sexual brokenness.

With gratitude,
