Daily D – Luke 23:55-56

by | Apr 3, 2021 | Daily D | 0 comments

The women who had come with him from Galilee followed along and observed the tomb and how his body was placed. Then they returned and prepared spices and perfumes. And they rested on the Sabbath according to the commandment.
LUKE 23:55-56 (CSB)

_____________________________________________________________________________

 

Jesus was put to bed, laid to rest. 

The tomb was sealed. 

Death ruled those confines with darkness and silence. 

There is no hope in the grave. Death’s grip is strong. Is anything stronger? 

Breathless, lightless moldering began. Rot and decomposition ensued. Time promised nothing but memory, sadness, ultimate loss. 

The Light of the World was extinguished. Some fires are never rekindled. 

Silence.

Once upon a time, on a silent night, a holy night, a baby was born. 

Once upon a time, a toddler escaped a raving madman.

Once upon a time, a lost boy about to become a man was found after three days.

Once upon a time, a synagogue congregation decided to throw a man off a cliff to his death. 

Once upon a time, that perfect man of grace and truth was nailed to a cross, pierced with a spear, and laid in a borrowed tomb. 

Let’s see him escape this time. 

Yes, let’s. 

Fade to black.

Our Father, Silent Saturday is the longest day of the year. Thank you that it is followed by the endless day of eternity. Amen.

Daily D – Jonah 4:1-3

Jonah 4:1-3 Jonah was greatly displeased and became furious. He prayed to the Lord, “Please, Lord, isn’t this what I said while I was still in my own country? That’s why I fled toward Tarshish in the first place. I knew that you are a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger, abounding in faithful love, and one who relents from sending disaster. And now, Lord, take my life from me, for it is better for me to die than to live.”

Daily D – Psalm 128:1-4

Psalm 128:1-4

How happy is everyone who fears the LORD,
who walks in his ways!
You will surely eat
what your hands have worked for.
You will be happy,
and it will go well for you.
Your wife will be like a fruitful vine
within your house,
your children, like young olive trees
around your table.
In this very way
the man who fears the LORD
will be blessed.
