Jesus had died the death of the cross. His body was at Golgotha’s hill. Joseph, a follower of Christ, was said to have “craved the body of Jesus”.
Joseph boldly approached Pilate, the very man who sent Jesus to be crucified,
to ask if he could take the body of Jesus.
Joseph, out of love, honor and respect for The Lord risked his reputation, his life, to love Christ.
Is your craving for Christ this powerful within you? Are you willing to risk whatever need be to show the world, to show Jesus, that you love Him more than you love yourself?
Jesus had such a craving to be with you. He showed the world his love for you when he gave himself to be crucified in your place.
