The Borrowed Tomb

26 Sep

The Borrowed Tomb…

The empty tomb wasn’t just borrowed, it belonged to Joseph. God didn’t do the resurrection without us because it was His life, but it was our death. We gave Him our death and He gave us the resurrection.

It’s a joint effort in that we provide Him the tomb. He can’t have His own tomb. He doesn’t die by His own nature. It’s our death, so the resurrection doesn’t happen without you. He didn’t buy a tomb, so we can give Him our tomb.

Your tomb is your place of death, the dark, empty places of your life. It includes your sins, judgment, sorrows, and hopelessness. That’s what He wants. It’s not meant for you to hold on to. It stays dark if you hold on to it–but give it to Him and it’s going to be changed.

The Lord wants to borrow your tomb. He’s not going to keep it, He’s going to give it back, but He can’t promise you it’ll be in the same condition.

Give Him that thing in your life. He’ll roll away the stone, because the miracle comes when it stops being just THE empty tomb and starts becoming YOUR empty tomb.

For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. Matthew 11:30

Bring to God whatever sin, hopelessness, sorrow, darkness, shame, that issue that’s still in your life – and borrow His tomb to be finished with it – once and for all.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
