Jesus, an upright man

October 26, 2012

The Life of Jesus; read today:Centurion glorifies God; Matthew 27:54; Mark 15:39; Luke 23:47

BBE: Luke 23:47. And when the captain saw what was done, he gave praise to God, saying, Without doubt this was an upright man.

A man who was not Jewish, not part of the people that were suppose to have studied the scriptures to know that the Messiah was coming, he could see what the other could not. He could see that Jesus was a truly upright man.

How come I can not see that in my life. How come I can not see that Jesus is there to help me with all my problems. Why do I struggle with the same problems over and over again?  I am to some degree no better in that respect than the ones who cheered on at Jesus crucifixion. Sure, I have Him as my savior and Lord, but do I let Him guide me in all areas of my life.

Please, help me trust you even more Jesus.

Read for next time: Multitude leaves grieving; Luke 23:48

Sorry for the 3 month away. Life has been crazy busy and I have gone through some emotional ups and downs.  Will try to get back on target here.
