One Thousand Gifts (Continued)

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)

There are various things and times in my life that have caused me to be in AWE.  It is my prayer, however that I can truly proclaim that I am in awe of the cross.  Christ conquered death; He took my sin and shame; He suffered in my place and He experienced death and hell so that I could have eternal life. His death was not accidental.  It was planned and purposeful.  Through Him, I have the gift of salvation and I am FREE!  That is certainly something to be in AWE of!

Continuing to give thanks...
