I have chosen the way of faithfulness; I have set my heart on your laws. I hold fast to your statutes, Lord; do not let me be put to shame. I run in the path of your commands, for you have broadened my understanding.—Psalm 119:30–32 (NIV)
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.
