Day 111 - John 19:38-42
Points to Ponder:
1.Who buried Jesus in the tomb?
2.What is interesting and encouraging about seeing these people bury him?
3.What do you learn about them in their actions?
They took Jesus’ body and wrapped it in linen cloths with the fragrant spices, according to the burial custom of the Jews. There was a garden in the place where he was crucified. A new tomb was in the garden; no one had yet been placed in it. They placed Jesus there because of the Jewish day of preparation and since the tomb was nearby. – John 19:40-42
Lord Jesus, these godly men along with the women took such care of your body. They were not afraid of push back or retaliation from the Jewish leaders. In love, they honored and cared for your body. Lord Jesus, help me to honor you with my whole life no matter who is looking; no matter how it looks. Help me devote my life – with all my energy, all my strength, all my treasures, all my time – help me devote my life to honoring you with all I am and all I have. I am yours! All that I have is yours! Help me to honor with with it. Amen.
