Jesus Is Buried
Now when evening had come, because it was the Preparation Day, that is, the day before the Sabbath, Joseph of Arimathea, a prominent council member, who was himself waiting for the kingdom of God, coming and taking courage, went in to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Pilate marveled that He was already dead; and summoning the centurion, he asked him if He had been dead for some time. So when he found out from the centurion, he granted the body to Joseph. Then he bought fine linen, took Him down, and wrapped Him in the linen. And he laid Him in a tomb which had been hewn out of the rock, and rolled a stone against the door of the tomb. And Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Jesus observed where He was laid.
“Only a few Sundays a year do virtually all of us who follow Jesus on this whirling orb center on the exact same events in His earthly life. Imagine all the dialects and accents echoing these words to high heaven this day: Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord.” – Beth Moore, Twitter
This was being shared on Facebook, so I decided to share it as well.
Some comments that have been made are:
We are all sinners.
This is so true.
Showing love to all is difficult especially if you have been hurt or wronged by someone.
“The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” -Mark 12:29-31
I love this version…this song…
Luke 1:26-33 – The Birth of Jesus Foretold
26 In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, 27 to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 28 The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”
29 Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. 30 But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid,Mary; you have found favor with God. 31 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, 33 and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.
“If you would make a man happy, do not add to his possessions but subtract from the sum of his desires.” – unknown
My desires aren’t of stuff…it is of time. Time spent with family and friends. I want more time, but who doesn’t?
“Energy and time are precious, limited entities. Therefore, you need to use them wisely, focusing on what is truly important. As you walk close to Me, saturating your mind with Scripture, I will show you how to spend your time and energy. My word is a lamp to your feet; My Presence is a Light for your Path.” Psalm 119:105–Jesus is Calling
This is just plain funny to me…I don’t mean to offend anyone.I loved this…
