It might surprise you to know Jesus was buried in a borrowed tomb. Don't believe me.... look it up?! Jesus owned no tomb or burial place of his own-.Isaiah 53:9.Why was it borrowed? Because Jesus needed no permanent place in a dead state. We all know how this story ends. He rose again which allowed us to become new! We step out of our old selves and walk in a new light. Thing is, we did nothing to earn it, to deserve it, or even to be able to say we worked for it. No! It was entirely grace. Someone else paid the price for our transgressions. FYI, the cross too was borrowed. A temporary suffering for a lifetime of salvation....ours! How awesome is that?
Now finally, to something blue. In this we share. Jesus suffering and anguish. Our lifetime of penance for Adam and Eve's shenanigans. But you know, it is all good. In the end, everybody gets what they want. If we choose to, we will rejoin Jesus in the Kingdom and Jesus if he has so chosen us, he sees a just reward through us in the blood he shed.
Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. Thank you Jesus!
