“And behold, the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. And the earth shook, and the rocks were split. The tombs also were opened. And many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised, and coming out of the tombs after his resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many.” – Matthew 27:51-53
i think there are a few moments in human history where it is unmistakably clear to us that we have royally screwed up. this was one of those moments. the ensuing chaos made it completely clear that, as one of the centurion onlookers said, “this man was the son of God.”
but he didn’t realize it before the chaos. in fact, he crucified him.
sometimes God uses our chaos and messes and royal screw ups to show us something that we couldn’t see when everything was in it’s right place.
