After the body of Jesus is washed, prepared with spices, and wrapped in
cloth, it is placed in a borrowed sepulcher. The stone is rolled over to
block the entrance. Guards stand watch, lest the body be stolen.
To his followers standing by, Jesus' death looks so final, the tomb
air-tight and dark.
It's good for us to ponder our own lifeless bodies embalmed, laid
out in our casket, and ready for burial. For although we may look fine,
all laid out in our Sunday best, we're not there. Our spirit will
have moved on to a new life with God.
Help us, Lord, to see our own tombs through the eyes of faith, as our
gateway into new and everlasting life. As Jesus did not stay in the tomb,
but rose again on Easter, so do we believe that our communion with Jesus
in life and in death will bring us to a like resurrection.
God and Father, for this, we praise and thank you.
