Luke 23:47 Now when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man.
The hardened Roman soldier had watched Jesus die. He had seen the sun go dark. He had felt the earthquake. He had heard how Jesus dealt with His accusers. He had seen how Jesus responded to the Roman soldiers that were crucifying Him.
After the hours of watching Jesus, the centurion gives his testimony that Jesus is a righteous man. He evidently had watched many men die. He knew that you could what was really in a man in those moments. He knew Jesus was the real deal.
I want to glorify God also. I have seen what Jesus has done in my life. I have seen Him work in other people’s lives. I want to magnify Him. I know He is who He says He is. I know Jesus is a good man. He is God in human flesh.
