We are reading Matthew 27:62-66. You can find it here.

It’s a day when not much happens. The tomb is guarded. The disciples are huddled behind doors. Mourning. Wondering. Feeling lost.

Most of us don’t give a lot of thought to the Saturday between Good Friday and Easter Sunday. Except maybe for this year.

  • It feels more real doesn’t it.
  • It feels like we have lost so much.
  • We feel so cut off.
  • Isolated.
  • We wonder…
    • what’s next? (we are not sure)
    • how long will this last? (probably longer than we think)
    • will things get back to normal? (I think a lot of things will change)
    • what’s going to happen to my job, to my savings, to school, to… (a lot of questions with few answers at this time)
  • It’s easy to get caught up in all this
    • It’s OK to acknowledge the loss
    • It’s good to recognize what we are missing
    • But don’t waste the time… dig deep into God’s presence and his word.
      • where have you been reading?
      • what has God been teaching you?
    • Remember, that even though the disciples thought that Saturday was the end of the story…
    • It wasn’t!
