Greetings in the Name of our Crucified, Dead, and Buried Lord and Savior Jesus Christ:
Today, April 11, 2020 is Holy Saturday. If you have not reviewed the previous posts for Holy Week 2020, I invite you to do so now in order to have a better frame of reference for this daily post. I pray that you find this message beneficial in your devotions this day.
There is no stated verse or theme for Holy Saturday as it is meant to be a quiet day inviting contemplation on Jesus’ own Sabbath rest in the tomb.
Old Testament: Daniel 6:1-24
Psalm: Psalm 16
Epistle: 1 Peter 4:1-8
Gospel: Matthew 27:57-66
Collect of the Day:
O God, creator of heaven and earth, grant that as the crucified body of Your dear Son was laid in the tomb and rested on this Holy Sabbath, so we may await with Him the coming of the third day, and rise with Him to newness of life, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
