Meditating on God’s Word | Luke 23:46-47

Written By Holy Scripture

Scripture Memorization

Take time today to memorize the final breath of Jesus in Luke 23:46-47. One of the best ways to meditate on God’s word is to chew on it, and one of the best ways to chew on it is to hide it in your heart. Let the concepts, ideas, and images marinate in your soul as you internalize the Word. 


Then Jesus, calling out with a loud voice, said, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!” And having said this he breathed his last. Now when the centurion saw what had taken place, he praised God, saying, “Certainly this man was innocent!”

– Luke 23:46-47

  1. Susan

    I weep when I read this passage.

    • Gabriel Coyle

      Truly, Susan. It is powerful. Thank you for your transparency.

  2. Allison Payton

    In this passage who is the centurion? What was his role there?

    • Gabriel Coyle

      Great questions, Allison. Luke doesn’t give us clarity as to the identity of this centurion, but it does begin to get you aching for how Peter goes to Cornelius’ house in Acts, who was a centurion God fearer within whom God was working when he embraced Jesus.

Prayer tills the soil of the soul to receive the word of God. Take time today resting, delighting and listening to God in prayer. Take 10 minutes today to pray for God to speak afresh through His word, and that you would have “ears to hear and eyes to see” His truth and direction.
