Sabbath Service 24 July, 2021: “Truly this man was a Son of God”
Bible verse: Mark 15:39 | And when the centurion, who stood there in front of Jesus, saw how he died, he said, “Surely this man was the Son of God!”
All we know for certain is that Jesus on the cross was not just a great teacher, dying for his belief. He was not just a good man suffering innocently. He was, and is, the loving God himself, who came as a human being to save men, women, and children from sin and death, and from all the stain and fear and guilt and shame which cling to our hearts, our memories, our imaginations, our lives. People still puzzle over how Jesus can be divine and human at the same time. It remains a puzzle if we assume that the word ‘God’ refers to a distant, detached, supernatural landlord. Many people still think that the word ‘God’ refers to a being like that. But try imagining the Old Testament God for a minute – passionate, involved with his people in their wanderings and stupidity, loving them tenderly and rescuing them again and again, grieving over their folly and their pain, taking costly action to redeem them. What would that God look like if he were to become human, and live among us humans?
