Waiting on God

John 19:28-42


The Death of Jesus

 Later, knowing that everything had now been finished, and so that Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, “I am thirsty.”  A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus’ lips. When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

Now it was the day of Preparation, and the next day was to be a special Sabbath. Because the Jewish leaders did not want the bodies left on the crosses during the Sabbath, they asked Pilate to have the legs broken and the bodies taken down.  The soldiers therefore came and broke the legs of the first man who had been crucified with Jesus, and then those of the other. But when they came to Jesus and found that he was already dead, they did not break his legs. Instead, one of the soldiers pierced Jesus’ side with a spear, bringing a sudden flow of blood and water.  The man who saw it has given testimony, and his testimony is true. He knows that he tells the truth, and he testifies so that you also may believe. These things happened so that the scripture would be fulfilled: “Not one of his bones will be broken,”and, as another scripture says, “They will look on the one they have pierced.”

The Burial of Jesus

Later, Joseph of Arimathea asked Pilate for the body of Jesus. Now Joseph was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly because he feared the Jewish leaders. With Pilate’s permission, he came and took the body away.  He was accompanied by Nicodemus, the man who earlier had visited Jesus at night. Nicodemus brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about seventy-five pounds. Taking Jesus’ body, the two of them wrapped it, with the spices, in strips of linen. This was in accordance with Jewish burial customs.  At the place where Jesus was crucified, there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb, in which no one had ever been laid.  Because it was the Jewish day of Preparation and since the tomb was nearby, they laid Jesus there.


And so we wait on Jesus to resurrect from the grave. While we wait, what will you do while waiting? How about we play some video games & evangelize to other gamers. Share to them about Good Friday & “Easter” Resurrection Sunday and what this time is all about.


In our daily walk with Christ, when we speak to Him and looking at this time “waiting on God.” We need to wait on Him in our day to day with Him. Be patient and wait.

While we are waiting… We will serve You, we will worship You while we wait on You, Lord. Please enjoy this music video by John Waller – While I’m Waiting

Small Prayers


The world has brain washed us saying when you pray, pray big. Well, not a lot of us have a lot of big prayers so we just don’t pray at all. God doesn’t just want to hear you pray big prayers but also small prayers. Is there such thing as too small of a prayer? No!

Example: 116 Boyz Motto is: PRAY before you PLAY – Do you do that?

Whether your playing an offline or online game, you need to pray. Have you ever played a game and your trying to complete the achievements and there 1 or 2 that are very hard to complete and maybe you come close a couple times but don’t get it, then all of a sudden you RAGE in anger. Been there? I’m sure we all have. Now since you think about, now you can see why maybe you should pray. God cares if you rage and He wants to complete the game. Before you probably thought, why pray before playing a game? That’s so little. But God wants to be apart of your WHOLE life, even gaming.  After I prayed, shortly later on, I completed the achievements and not just completed but tripling my score and when I would fail, I didn’t rage.

The moral is PRAY before you do anything, BIG or small and to get you in the habit of praying.

God wants us to talk to Him often throughout our day, not JUST in the morning or JUST at night, but throughout our whole day.

If you are playing an offline game and don’t know what to pray? Pray this: Lord, help me to not rage, but enjoy the game and help me to pass the levels or achievements. Amen.
