John 19:42New International Version (NIV)
42 Because it was the Jewish day of Preparation and since the tomb was nearby,they laid Jesus there.
Today is a day of silence in Scripture. After Jesus was crucified, he was laid in a tomb. Only Roman guards stood next to the tomb guarding for supposed grave robbers.
Even though Scripture is quiet, we know that our Lord was at work in Spirit. My mind goes back to that empty tomb I saw at Jerusalem. It was chilling to walk into that place of which they thought Jesus was laid.
Let’s look at today with eyes of over 2000 years ago. Remember what our Lord did as payment for our sins. A solemn thought at best. Yes, tomorrow is Easter, and we celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord. But today, let’s remember the sacrifice and keep our eyes on the cross.
Strength and Courage
