“Truly, this man was the Son of God.” – Matthew 37:54
As the Centurion stood at the foot of the Cross, he came to belief in Jesus. We are reminded of Jesus’ words found in John 12:32: He foretold of this day when he said,
“…when I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw everyone to myself.”
Jesus was lifted up from the earth and hung on the Cross. The Centurion was at the Cross not because of believe but because of his military assignment. And God drew him into the mystery, giving him faith in Jesus through the powerful sign of the Cross.
When you look at the Cross, are you drawn in to the Mystery? We too have the opportunity, like the Centurion, to come to the Cross and be drawn to Jesus. Let us make time to enter into the mystery and be bathed in His loving embrace – the Greatest Love man can know.
May God bless you!
