Mark 15: 37-39: NASV Jesus uttered a loud’ cry, and breathed His last. And the veil in the temple was torn from top to bottom. When the centurion, who was standing right in front of Jesus, saw the way He breathed His last, he said, “Truly this man was the Son of God!”
Yes, Jesus who died on the cross is the Son of God who died for our sins. He forgives our sins when we repent asking Him to our Savior now and forever.
Here is a short story:
When my husband was recently hospitalized, the hospital ambassador checked in the room inquiring how things were going. Before she left, she asked if I wanted a “Cross in My Pocket?” It was a small, mesh cross decorated in a pocket with a poem called “Cross in My Pocket.” I gladly accepted this token of Christianity. The poem was kind and thoughtful, but there was one stanza that stood out:
When I put my hand in my pocket To bring out a coin or a key The cross is there to remind me Of the price He paid for me.”
That poem and the cross in my pocket reminded me of the centurion who believed. May we all remember what Jesus did whether life gives us a challenging or a peaceful day!
