Exodus 6:14-7:25; Psalm 37:1-40; Acts 2:22-47

Joseph of Arimathea…which also waited for the kingdom of God. Mark 15:43a

Joseph “waited” for the kingdom to come, yet craved the body of the King and placed it in the tomb. At that moment, disappointment must have filled his heart. But oh, what joy is ours, what peace of mind, to “wait” for our risen King of kings and His kingdom. All earthly disappointments will be over then; no tomb, but our Saviour on the throne. —Sam Thorpe, Jr.

He was better to me than all my hopes;
He was better than all my fears;
He made a bridge of my broken works,
And a rainbow of my tears. —Anna Shipton
