Joseph of Arimathea, a respected member of the council, who was also himself looking for the kingdom of God, took courage and went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus.
Joseph took courage.
He had been cowardly before.
BUT he took courage on this occassion.
He rose up.
He honored God.
You have been a coward.
Take courage today.
In whatever it is you do today ask for forgiveness for cowardice.
Pray for bravery for the occassions in which you find yourself.
