Scripture reading for February 28th: Mark 15, Psalm 43, Proverbs 12
Key Scriptures: Mark 15:37-39 “And Jesus uttered a loud cry and breathed His last. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. And when the centurion, who stood facing Him, saw that in this way He breathed His last, he said, “Truly this man was the Son of God!””
Soldiers from the Roman army garrison had conducted the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and two others and were there guarding the condemned. Mark records the last cry of Jesus from the cross and the rending of the temple curtain. The curtain was torn from top to bottom! But the centurion in charge, an eyewitness, was overcome by the manner in which Jesus breathed His last breath. He made a faith confession: “Truly this man was the Son of God!”
Faith Confession: Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God!
Proverbs 12:17 “Whoever speaks the truth give honest evidence, but a false witness utters deceit.”
