4/14/14 Daily Devotion

Matthew 27:58-60 Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus’ body, and Pilate ordered that it be given to him. Joseph took the body, wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, and placed it in his own new tomb that he had cut out of the rock. He rolled a big stone in front of the entrance to the tomb and went away.

Through his sacrifice, courage, and action, Joseph demonstrated the impact Jesus had on his life. It took courage to stand before Pilate and receive permission to obtain the body of Jesus. If took effort to obtain the body and prepare it for burial. His sacrifice came from allowing the body of Jesus to be placed in his own tomb, the tomb that he had cut out of rock. Joseph demonstrated to all that Jesus had a powerful impact on his life. Can the same be said of our actions, sacrifices, and courage. Can others see the obvious impact of Jesus on our lives? Can they even tell that we have been saved? If the answer to any of these questions is no, something needs to change within our lives.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help my life become a powerful witness within this world, a witness to Your existence within my life.
