“I remain confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the Lord
in the land of the living.
14 Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord.”
Psalm 27:13-14 NIV
It is finished…Jesus, the Messiah, had been crucified and died. We all know the coming glory of tomorrow…however, when these events were happening, it is hard to comprehend the level of sorrow and sadness that had to exist on the day between His death and resurrection. Unfortunately, in the world today many of us suffer at a deep level of sorrow because of our sin and evil. Our saving grace and our truth is we know that from the most devastating tragedy, God will renew and restore us…Resurrection Day is coming. Trust in the Lord for He is good and His love endures forever. Amen.
“Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus’ body. Then he took it down, wrapped it in linen cloth and placed it in the tomb cut in the rock, one in which no one had yet been laid. It was Preparation Day, and the Sabbath was about to begin.”
Luke 23:52-54 NIV
