When the even was come,
there came a rich man of Arimathaea,
who also himself was Jesus’ disciple:
He went to Pilate,
and begged the body of Jesus.
Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered.
And when Joseph had taken the body,
he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth,
And laid it in his own new tomb,
which he had hewn out in the rock:
and he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre,
And there was Mary Magdalene,
and the other Mary,
sitting over against the sepulchre.
Were they . . .
trying to hold on to hope
like Mary and Martha sure Jesus would ‘rise again in the resurrection at the last day’ (John 11:24)
Jesus knew all about those feelings and fears,
remember He wept with the grieving.
Have compassion with the grieving . . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
