This man went unto Pilate and begged for the body of Jesus...and the women...followed and beheld the sepulchre and how his body was laid. And they returned and prepared spices and ointments and rested the sabbath day according to the commandment. Luke 23v.52-53
ring, ring. Hey Genelle, Girl, did you hear about Jesus?
Yes, I saw it on the internet. (She sobs.)
Listen, we' re going after the Sabbath to prepare his body. Can you come and bring some spices?
I want to, but I have to work. Can we go tonight?
I don't know, Genelle. The Sabbath has already started, it is after sundown.
Yeah, but just this once, I want to do something for Jesus. He was so good to me and my family.
But we are commanded to rest...
Look, if we went tonight for just a little while, the two of us get a headstart on preparing his body. When the other girls come after the Sabbath, it will be so much easier for them. Let me get my donkey, grab the spices and swing by your place in about 30 minutes...
The Bible tells us that the women rested as commanded, waited and found the stone of Every Impossiblity rolled away the next morning!
Love you guys,
