Ressurection Place – adapted by Dana Jarvis
There came a rich man of Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus’ disciple: He went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered. And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the small room and departed. (Matthew 27:57-60)
He did not care or fear the condition of the body. Bloodied and nail scarred. He is going to move it from a place of death to a place of resurrection..
This man said, “I’m moving it from where it is to where it ought to be”.
See, I don’t care how bad you may feel you look. I don’t care how decayed you feel your life is. I don’t care how dead spiritually you feel you are, how addicted you are. How messed up or broken you feel. I am here to tell you that you are so strong and this is not the end of your story. I am cheering you on and so is your King of Glory!
He will move you from that place of death into a place of rebirth (resurrection).
That child is moving from death to life! That marriage is moving from death to life. That situation is on the move! The addict, the broken, the ones religion kept bound and feeling condemned is not staying in this place no more, they are moving!
Who is this coming to you, leaning on you and treating you like their beloved? This is us, the Body of Christ, the Bride. He is taking us out of those difficult and lonely places as we lean upon him. He is resuscitating his Bride with the fresh wind of His Holy Spirit!!
That place where you feel weary, that place of darkness, that place of pain and hurt, that place where you feel you are alone, I assure you that is more with you than you know. He is moving you from where you are to where you need to be. You are positioned for resurrection!!
Bible Scripture Mathew 27:57-60
The Burial 57When the even was come, there came a rich man of Arimathæa, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus’ disciple: 58he went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered. 59And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, 60and laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre, and departed.
Meditation: Imagine having Jesus by your side. He has come to give you a rebirth of his Holy Spirit to help you get over any painful or difficult time in your life. He is moving you into a resurrection of living life abundantly! Thank him for being the best friend and Father you could ever have.
