Finished...


Saturday before Easter is always an interesting day. There's usually much preparation for the meal, deciding what to wear to church, and in our house sometime preparations for the church service itself. We do all of this because we know that tomorrow we will be celebrating our risen Lord! But today I find myself wondering what it must have been like all those years ago, to be one of Jesus' followers. They heard the words Jesus said on the cross...it is finished. Did they know what Jesus meant? Did they think well, this is it...it really is finished? Did any of them really understand when Jesus told them he would come back? That Saturday for them was most likely not a hope-filled day or a day filled with excited anticipation. Today, it is rainy and miserable outside here...is that how the hearts of Jesus' followers felt that day...dark and miserable? Imagine how their emotions are going to change...Sunday is coming....
