Read: Matthew 27: 57-61
Think: Have you ever been to a cemetery as a loved one was buried? It’s depressing to see the shell of the one you loved being lowered into the ground. That’s how Jesus’ friends felt too. All they had hoped for was lost and sealed away by a two-ton rock. What in your life feels dead and hopeless? What rock in your life do you feel stands between you and resurrection?
Pray: God, I feel the brokenness of this world. Sin has wrecked everything. I feel buried in my sin. Remind me that you are a God of resurrection and you never fail.
Apply: Take some time to journal your prayers to God. Write down the things in your life that you need Jesus to resurrect.
