Today will be filled with preparation for tomorrow’s feast.
Food will be purchased.
Sweets will be made.
Eggs will be dyed.
Busyness will be the order of the day.
But, what was Jesus doing on this day centuries ago.
In the tomb.
The resurrection is at hand.
That is so what I want to remember and prepare for this Saturday before Easter.
My prayer for my family and yours is that in our busyness of the family gathering and the preparation, we don’t forget to show devotion.
So, slow down with me, won’t you?
Take time today to worship the King Jesus for his sacrifice.
Be sure, as I am doing, that Easter is not just an emotion. It is a devotion.
Devotion to the one true King and Savior.
The greatest gift the world has ever known.
Now there was a man named Joseph, a member of the Council, a good and upright man, who had not consented to their decision and action. He came from the Judean town of Arimathea, and he himself was waiting for the kingdom of God. Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus’ body. Then he took it down, wrapped it in linen cloth and placed it in a tomb cut in the rock, one in which no one had yet been laid. It was Preparation Day, and the Sabbath was about to begin.
The women who had come with Jesus from Galilee followed Joseph and saw the tomb and how his body was laid in it. Then they went home and prepared spices and perfumes. But they rested on the Sabbath in obedience to the commandment. Luke 23:50-56
