Wednesday, March 28 — Psalm 40:1–8
Exodus 32:30–33:23; Matthew 26:47–58
You shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near you. Isaiah 54:14
Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.” John 14:27
God of the Sabbath, we learn in the story of Holy Week that Jesus paused to rest upon this day in preparation for what would come at the Last Supper and Calvary. May we pause to remember what you have given us. Amen.
