Holy Saturday

And so we wait…wait for tomorrow when we celebrate Jesus’ resurrection.  Until then…

Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.

Psalm 46:10 (NIV)


      Good Friday

      He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.

      1 Peter 2:24 (NIV)

      Maundy Thursday: In the Upper Room by Helen Welshimer

      So eloquently written.

      The answer to the question is “yes.”

      In The Upper Room

      Perhaps at first they talked of little things

      At suppertime that evening in the spring.

      The upper room was dim with candle-shine

      As Jesus sat with twelve, remembering.

      Then quietly He said, “There is one here

      Whose kiss will bring betrayal by and by.”

      They did not look at Judas curiously,

      But each man murmured, “Master, is it I?”

      Each one look inward, frightened lest he find

      A shoddy place where he had dreamed of steel.

      None placed the guilt on any other guest

      Who had partaken of that gracious meal.

      When there are hungry on my little street,

      When I see tears or hear a heart’s hurt cry

      Because someone has failed to keep high faith,

      May I, too murmur, “Master, is it I?”

      Helen Welshimer
