Great Sabbath

Saturday, March 30, 2024 — Psalm 42
Exodus 36; Matthew 27:11–31

The Lord will rise up to show mercy to you.
Isaiah 30:18

For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through him might be saved. John 3:17 NKJV

Dear Jesus, as we await the triumph of Easter joy, we remember that your crucifixion was not the condemnation of our sinfulness, but the profound expression of your love. On the cross, you spread wide your arms and declared to us, “I love you this much.” What wondrous love is this. Amen.
