THURSDAY, MARCH 28TH
Put yourself in the place of the first followers of
Christ who were there at His death. Your heart would be broken. Your
mind would be racing. This isn't anything at all like what was supposed
to happen to the King of the Jews. He was supposed to set everything
right. Mend what was broken. Restore what was lost. But now, it would
seem, all is lost. Everything is broken. Nothing is right.
time today trying to live in that space between the cross and the empty
tomb. After hope has left. Before grace has come. Use that feeling to
fuel your prayer for someone you know that lives there every day. Ask
God to show you how to reach out to them and invite them into your
Easter observances this weekend.
