Matthew 27:54 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 had watched many men die. He would have been a very cynical man. He would have been very hard to impress. He watched Jesus along with many others. He saw and felt the earthquake. He watched the entire proceedings like he had so many times before. When all of this was over he made a simple declaration. Truly Jesus was the Son of God. He knew.
A battle hardened, lost, hardened, cruel, Roman soldier watched Jesus die and knew something was different. He knew that He was the Son of God. Today you need to see your need of salvation and believe that He was the Son of God dying for you!
