enemies. But I really think it was his doing that pushed them over the edge. Extending healing love on the Sabbath, healing a leper, raising to life a girl and a women's son, feeding thousands of people, extending forgiveness to a sinful women. I'm just scratching the surface here. I wish desperately that this Week we call Holy would stir up the people again.
However, you never know when "Love Does" people will continue to be stirred up.

extends love through healing and miracles there is the belief and faith that life can be transformed and a new life lived. These Holy Days before us are the ultimate days of love does. All the healing, all the miracles, all the teachings of Jesus lead to the depth of God's love in this passion. Herod had been wanting to see Jesus for a long time - unfortunately he never truly sees him because he's looking for an entertainer not a savior who can transform life.

there with Jesus. One asks Jesus to use whatever power he has to get him out of this mess. The other understands the situation fully. I deserve to be hanging here - he doesn't! Unlike Herod who hasn't a clue who is standing before him, this guy knows exactly who is hanging next to him. All he asks of Jesus is to be remembered when Jesus moves from the cross to his kingdom. Dear friend, here is the biggest love does of all - Jesus says not only will I remember you but I invite you to share in my kingdom; "Today you will be with me in paradise." Words from the cross worth remembering.

Love Does - Day 39
Luke 23:52-53 (Joseph of Arimathea) This man went to Pilate and asked him for the body of Jesus. Then he took it down, wrapped it in a linen cloth, and laid it in a rock-hewn tomb where no one had ever been laid.

Somehow Jesus got under Joseph’s skin. Or more to the point transforms his heart. This is the first and only time we hear of Joseph of Arimathea. Four verses attributed to him. We are told that he is a good and righteous man. It's interesting the same description is used of Joseph who was betrothed to Mary the mother of Jesus. Both these Joseph’s took the risk of caring for Jesus, one at the beginning and one at the end of Jesus’ life. Both are used to tell the story not knowing how it will end. But both are willing to risk their status and reputation on the unknown. Joseph says yes to God and Mary and steps out in faith. Joseph of Arimathea, part of the council that sentenced Jesus to death (he didn’t agree with the plan we are told), boldly steps forward and places Jesus’ lifeless body in a tomb. Maybe that is really what Easter is about, what love does is all about – stepping out in faith regardless what people think, not knowing what God has in store next.
