” Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” ( Matt 27 : 46 )
That was the last words of Jesus on the Cross.
There was darkness over all the land. It was a different time of the year. A time that whole humanity were waiting for to happen. Father knew that time. But it was a time of silence for Him. Saturday of Silence was so heavier than before.
Jesus’s words echoes into heaven. I am reading the Bible and these words are echoing into my heart. But this echo, is echo of resurrection and victory over the sin. Jesus brought this to this new generation. Our 21 century , our 22 century – all centuries need Jesus and his victory.
That darkness was not the end of line – But the empty tomb shown lightness to all of us. Brought hope to our hopeless life. Brought life to our lifeless bodies. Brought light to our darkness nights. The Saturday of Silence.
Thank you Jesus for your life, Thank you that you died on the cross for me. Thank you for your endless forgiveness and love. I am so glad that the waiting will be over on Sunday morning / the day of your resurrection. The next day of Silence will bring new life. The old will be gone and new will come.
