I was sent this fabulous point of view from a fellow blogger and wanted to share:
From the blog: Walk With Me By Faith
I was listening to the radio this morning on my drive into work and the radio hosts were doing an interview with Max Lucado. Max has written something like nine books on the subject of Easter. Although he said really all of his books will come back to the death, burial and resurrection of Christ because that’s really what it’s all about!
He mentioned that as we approach Easter weekend all people really talk about is Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday, but what about that Saturday? The Saturday of Silence. A lot of us live our lives on that Saturday, he says. We’ve accepted Jesus and His salvation, but we’re still waiting on our Sunday.
Maybe you’re like me and you’re living in between the offered prayer and the answered prayer; the experience of pain and the solution of pain. But you know what? Jesus knows. He breathed His last and then experienced that Saturday of silence, that Saturday of suffering before He was resurrected the next day.
I loved hearing this and then seeing Easter weekend in a new light. I’m so incredibly thankful for what Jesus did for me on the cross. I’m incredibly thankful that the Father raised Him from the grave on Sunday. And, I’m also incredibly thankful for a Savior that knows and has experienced the in between time as well.
