“When the centurion and those who were with him, keeping watch over Jesus, saw the earthquake and what took place, they were filled with awe and said, ‘Truly this was the Son of God!’” (Matthew 27:54 ESV)
On the other hand, there are the Jewish leaders who had also seen these things and the curtain in the temple torn in two, from top to bottom, and saints raised from the dead appearing to many in Jerusalem, and all they can say is, “We remember how that impostor said, while he was still alive, ‘After three days I will rise.’ Therefore order the tomb to be made secure until the third day, lest his disciples go and steal him away and tell the people, ‘He has risen from the dead,’ and the last fraud will be worse than the first” (Matthew 27:63-64).
Impostor? Fraud? Jesus accomplished all he said he would. He spoke the truth. But because the little empire the Jews had built was threatened by the true King, they who knew better refused the Lord.
So which one are you? The humble believer or the cynic who’s certain he’s always right. May God give us eyes to see and ears to hear, and hearts that will not be hardened through huge egos.
