Today's time being shaped by the Word is in John 19:38-42.
Thank You for the example of Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemas. When no one else did, You used a secret follower of Jesus and a Pharisee to honor Jesus in burial. The one, too afraid of the Jews to publicly confess Christ. . . The other, a leader of the Jews. You united the timid and the one he was afraid of for Your glory. Unite your church with this kind of unity of purpose.
