The Entombment

The Entombment

Psalm 31:1-4, 15-16 Job 14:1-14 1
Peter 4:1-8 Matthew 27:57-66
Therefore, since Christ suffered in his body, arm yourself also
with the same attitude, because he who has suffered in his body is
done with sin.

It would seem to be understood, according to scripture, that we must
experience physical pain to find our center of faith and forgiveness.
Are these life lessons we must experience to find fulfillment
in our spiritual life and deepen our faith and trust in
God!!!!! If we are honest about ourselves we have harbored
thoughts if known would cause pain and discomfort to others. This
is our pain and probably continues throughout our life time. Our
faith controls our silent thoughts and transforms them into acts of
kindness.
I believe we earn our strength through challenging moments that are
emotional and often painful that take our breath away. Only through
these life experiences are we able to recognize and embrace others in
need of tender loving care.
