Lk. 23, 47 and Mk. 15, 39

I.

The death of Jesus made a profound impression on the Centurion, who was over the soldiers who crucified him–the seven words from the cross, & the natural phenomena as well.  Certainly he was a righteous man; nothing else could explain it.

II.

What we are & do impresses others about us–our spirit, our general deportment [are] our service to others; yes, & our death.

If we profess faith in Christ they expect us to live a new life, to be different from our former lives.

III.

How carefully ought we to live.

“Let your light so shine before men.”

“Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel.”

“By their fruits ye shall know them.”

“Does the world see Jesus in you?”

(1)  A consistently religious life.  This is so important, let we offend others.

(2)  In doing good, serving others where we are, in humility and love.  “Jesus went about doing good.”  Love finds a way.

IV.

Such people, in life and in death, impress others for good.

No one can gainsay such a life.  What a blessing all such people are!
