On Good Friday, Jesus died.
On Sunday, he rose.
On Saturday… we don’t talk much about Saturday.
On Saturday, nothing happened.
On Saturday, Jesus’ followers waited in despair. For what, they did not know.
If you’re in a Saturday of despair and waiting, take heart. Sunday will dawn. Resurrection is coming.
“Much of our life here on this earth is lived out feeling somewhat trapped in “Saturday.” I’m trying to get to a place in my life where I can embrace “Saturday.” I’m trying to get to a place where I can view it as a type of preparation for what I believe God might be doing in my life. You may currently be in the midst of a horrible, out-of-control situation. You feel as if God is not there, that there’s nothing that can be done. But here is the message of the gospel for you while you’re stuck in your helpless, hopeless Saturday life: God does his best work in hopeless situations. We worship a God who specializes in resurrections.” – Pete Wilson
