Today's daily devotion

The Great Silence of Holy Saturday

“Take a guard,” Pilate answered. “Go, make the tomb as secure as you know how.”—Matthew 27:65 (NIV)

The tomb was silent. Yet the silence would only last one more day. Today as you wait amidst the darkness of Good Friday and the Light of Easter, make time to reflect on the hope of the resurrection.

Lord Jesus, today I will focus on the miraculous fact that the darkness of yesterday will soon be overcome by the light of tomorrow.
