silent Sabbath

Today’s post has exactly one hundred and fifty-two more words than Scripture contains in speaking of the most sacred Sabbath in human history.  While it would be interesting to know what the disciples and other followers of Jesus were doing or thinking on that day, God has purposed to leave that curiosity unanswered.  Maybe it’s because God knows we would try to emulate it and then add to it.  You know, like the ancients did to the Passover celebration in corrupting the temple, or we moderns have done to Christmas.

For today, let’s embrace the silence and become that in the presence of God.  Let’s rest as creation did after exerting forces so violent that “…the sun’s light failed. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two.” (Luke 23:45)

As you rest, be sober and be vigilant … Resurrection is coming!
