Joseph sought Pilate for His body to adore

Gospel of Mark Ch 15 v- 42 thru 47

42 When it was already evening, since it was the day of preparation, the day before the sabbath, 43 Joseph of Arimathea, a distinguished member of the council, who was himself awaiting the kingdom of God, came and courageously went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. 44 Pilate was amazed that he was already dead. He summoned the centurion and asked him if Jesus had already died. 45 And when he learned of it from the centurion, he gave the body to Joseph. 46 Having bought a linen cloth, he took him down, wrapped him in the linen cloth and laid him in a tomb that had been hewn out of the rock. Then he rolled a stone against the entrance to the tomb. 47 Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses watched where he was laid.

How does the Spirit move you? Can you feel Him pushing you along being courageous when you normally are not? Can you hear His Word speak in your soul as He calls your responses without any preparation to start? This my friends is what Joseph of Arimathea did from the heart. He knew Jesus had to buried quick Sabbath day approached and no work would be done to fix the body the way he wanted to see him laid. He courageously went to Pilate and sought what others forgot or were scared to ask to be a witness in part. Fright prevents absolute success until the Spirit kicks in and courage comes to set you a part from others to direct their mindset. The Will of God provides the success He seeks in you. If you would just be like Joseph of Arimathea, you would just call on the Lord and you too will find the courage, constancy and craftiness to gain souls winning their freedom from sin by living God First in His Redemption. Amen.

Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty happy 82 we pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. Silence for the prayers of others dealing with the war in Ukraine. In the Holy Spirit we pray our brothers in Kairos especially a prayer for our men in blue. We pray for our niece Brittany who is a mother of four and 33 years old who has brain cancer stage four. We pray for Holy Mother Church. We pray for our Holy Mother. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

**Joseph sought Pilate for His body to adore**

Evening of Sabbath preparation day before

Courageous Arimathea council member distinguished implored

Joseph sought Pilate for His body to adore

God’s Kingdom he was waiting for and much much more

Amazed was Pilate His death already had been secured

Centurion summoned knowledge sought died already report

Centurion reported Jesus was dead for sure

Joseph received body from Pilate unobscured

Cloth linen brought that he had bought

Down from Cross he took Jesus he sought

Jesus wrapped in his fine clean linen cloth

Tomb he laid Jesus rock hewn stoned rolled closing entrance without a thought

They say there were Three Mary’s at the Cross

They watched Jesus be buried inside that rock

Magdalen’s Mary and Joses mother Mary watched

The Mother of our Lord mustn’t be far off
