Day 10 Easter Mark 15:33-41

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!”

I guess dying has been on my mind this week because of the death of Kara Tippetts. At the discovery of what would be terminal breast cancer she determined to live her life with the purpose of living well and dying well. I knew her not at all in her living but it is in her dying that she has come to my attention. Now, I am drawn to learn how she lived in detail and let her life and love for Jesus influence me.

I think of this centurion and how his life may have been changed by the way Jesus died. We talk a lot about living like Jesus – WWJD and all that. We acknowledge that to live like Him we must die to ourselves. But I wonder if we think that it is in the way we are choosing and experiencing and living this “daily dying” that may be the greater witness.
