57 As evening approached, Joseph, a rich man from Arimathea who had become a follower of Jesus, 58 went to Pilate and asked for Jesus’ body. And Pilate issued an order to release it to him. 59 Joseph took the body and wrapped it in a long sheet of clean linen cloth.
Matthew 27:57-59

Joseph Wraps Jesus for Burial

Joseph showed Jesus the utmost respect by wrapping His body in clean linen cloth. Respect is important to Jesus. We need to respect our parents, teachers, grandparents, and even Jesus. The way we respect Jesus is by confessing with our mouth that He is God. We can also show Him respect through having a relationship with Him. We can be with Him every day by praying, reading His Word, and obeying Him.
