Scripture - Mark 15

Observation - Chapter 14 begins with Jesus standing trial in front of Pilate. He asked Jesus if he was the king of the Jews and Jesus said ‘You have said so”. Later Jesus was led out to Golgotha to be crucified. Passersby hurled insults at him. Right after Jesus died on the cross, a centurion realized who Jesus really was. He said, “Surely this man was the Son of God!”

Application - People missed Jesus right in front of them. We still do today in the moments when we let the sacred moments grow mundane in our lives. What can change today as you live your faith out trusting that Jesus is the Son of God, still active in our lives?

Prayer - God, Help me to see what you are doing learn what it really means to follow you. Help me to better understand what it means to know that you are Jesus, the true son of God and that you sent the holy spirit to overflow in our lives. Amen.
