“He delivered us from the power of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” – Colossians 1:13 – 14
Holy Saturday. The day of darkness. The day of waiting. The day of silence. Christ has died, his body lying in the tomb. While we know what tomorrow holds, today Christ’s death is mourned. This day is a beautiful testimony to Christ’s humanity. Even the King of Kings embraces the cold and silence of death. Now, Christ has fully experienced everything we go through as human beings.
What do we do while we wait for Christ’s resurrection? We be still and pray. The situation our world is in now may feel like one long Holy Saturday. Uncertainty, confusion, darkness, loneliness. However, there is always an Eastertide. A day of joyful celebration. We will come upon that day soon. For now, we must be still and pray with Jesus’ Mother and friends at the tomb. Be still and know that He is God. He is in control and everything will fall into place.
