Friday April 14th Matthew 27 : 54
Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, "Truly this was the Son of God".

Chaos and darkness surrounded this centurion and all those who were with him but within that he found light; he recognised the light of Christ ironically in the moment that the light seems to have been put out.

I often wonder what happened to this man. Did he make this declaration and forget all about it, did he find out that three days later something very quiet and almost hidden happened? Jesus was raised from the dead and truly God's Son, the light of the world, had not been extinguished forever.

How often do we seem to be looking for God to appear in our lives in spectacular ways but so often he almost creeps in unnoticed.

God of all places, help us to declare your presence to others and to live differently because you are in our lives.
