From the outside, it looks like death has won. From the inside, death was being defeated once for all time.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Mark 15:46 Then he took Jesus' body down from the cross, wrapped it in the cloth, and laid it in a tomb that had been carved out of the rock. Then he rolled a stone in front of the entrance.
Read -Matthew 27:57–60; Mark 15:42–46; Luke 23:50–54; John 19:38–42
Jesus’ human life was laid down as the sinless sacrifice for sin. In these moments, hours and days that Jesus was in the tomb all hope seemed lost. Just like in our own lives, there are times when we don’t see what God is doing until He does it!
Lord, I will put my own sin to death by surrendering myself fresh and new to You today.
Read Isaiah 53:9 and see how this was fulfilled in today’s text.
For our sin (Marred) to be dealt with, we must die to it. To be Mended by Jesus we must repent of our sin and place our faith in Him that He will remove it from us. Just as Jesus went to the tomb, so must our old way of life so that we can begin a new life in Him where we live in His Light, His Love and experience His Life!
