The Worst Disciples Ever (John 19:38-42)
Following Jesus can seem overwhelming. Is following Jesus really about obeying rules? How can we obey and not be overwhelmed? In this sermon, Pastor Joel gives us some observations about obeying Jesus that can set us free as we commit to follow Jesus completely.

38 After these things Joseph of Arimathea, who was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, asked Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus, and Pilate gave him permission. So he came and took away his body. 39 Nicodemus also, who earlier had come to Jesus by night, came bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about seventy-five pounds in weight. 40 So they took the body of Jesus and bound it in linen cloths with the spices, as is the burial custom of the Jews. 41 Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb in which no one had yet been laid. 42 So because of the Jewish day of Preparation, since the tomb was close at hand, they laid Jesus there.
