I felt the intensity of how Jesus hung there on the cross. I could just imagine the pain He suffered as I continued to read on and with each drop of His blood as it dripped down His elbow was so,visualized. Breath taking story on how His cleansing blood can soften even the sound of a drip. Great job.

An amazing perspective for a powerful story. I have always wondered what was going on in the mind of that soldier.
This was painful to read, but excellent in every way. Definitely on topic, and thoughtfully written.

This was a beautifully written piece. I couldn't wait to see what the outcome was. It was interesting to see the event that changed so many lives through the eyes of a roman soldier. A man used to brutality, he saw the beauty of Saviour's love for him and the world. I love the end where the drop of blood falls on him. Yes, our Lord shed His precious blood for everyone, including those who wanted Him dead and those who nailed Him to the cross. Congratulations for a well deserved win.
This was so good. You are an amazing writer. I loved it and the end made me tear up.
