Greetings: God bless you this day.
This is day seven on our journey to the cross Jesus has been laid
to rest in a borrowed tomb and since this is the Sabbath Day, it
is a day of rest.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
Now there was a man named Joseph, a member of the Council, a good
and upstanding man who had not consented to their decisions and action.
He came from the Judean town of Arimathea and he was waiting for the
Kingdom of God. Going to pilate, he asked for Jesus' body. Then he took
it and wrapped it in linen cloth and placed it in a tomb cut out of rock, one
in which no one had been laid. it was preparation day and the Sabbath was
about to begin. Luke 23:50-54
After this quick burial his disciples took the Sabbath Day off. It was a day of
rest under the Jewish law and no one was suppose to do any work, It is
a hard concept for us as Christians to come to terms that Jesus was a Jew, not
only by faith but by birth. He was born under the Jewish law. He kept all the
Jewish laws, in fact He was the only one that was ever able to do that.
Know I prayed for you today. Blessings-Freda
