We know that our old self was Crucified with Him, so that our sinful body might be done away with, that we might no longer be in slavery to sin. For a dead person has been absolved from sin. If, then, we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him. Romans 6:6-8

The Holy Saturday many thought they were certainly Crucified with Jesus.

We know that our old self was Crucified with Him, so that our sinful body might be done away with, that we might no longer be in slavery to sin. For a dead person has been absolved from sin. If, then, we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him. Romans 6:6-8

Genesis 1:1–2:2, Psalm 16, Romans 6: 3-11 & Luke 24:1-12

The Holiest of Saturdays reflects on Christ’s frightening death on a Cross the day before while living in the present day of True Sabbath observance where historians trust this is why Judas’ body was not touched or moved believing the rope or branch eventually broke. The scene must have been horrendous and made it difficult to eat transitioning the Church into a history of fasting on Saturday that included 40 hours of no food. Our lives have changed but remain the same since Christ’s death for the severe fast is now offered on Friday yet we still reflect on this uncertainty many followers felt before knowing the Resurrection as Promised by Christ but seemingly doubted until the day Thomas places His hand in His side exclaiming, “My LORD and My God.”

The first day after Christ’s death must have been taxing on the soul of any who came to believe in the Teacher. Many thought they were certainly Crucified with Jesus dying an agonizing death of love feeling hopeless, unsure and lost. It wasn’t until the next day did anyone discover His Resurrection feeling exuberating amidst deep terrifying fears. Reflect today on His Resurrection and why it gave anyone who confesses Christ is LORD dies with Him being “absolved from sin.” Reflect on what scares you as they were scared being without Him over 2000 years ago. How can you manage your fears by living surrendered to a life of Christ? What can you do to make your life represent an Apostle of faith, hope and love living in charity? God asks us to have faith “he died to sin once and for all; as to his life, he lives for God” as we are asked to do. Amen.

We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today our old self dies from sin living for faith, hope and love of Your Son Christ Jesus. Praying for Kairos. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Greg Bishop has constant prayers. Day three of a Novena for Peter John and his wife Joy to find work and trust God will work His grace in their life. LORD from Psalm 56:5 I chant, ”I praise the word of God; I trust in God, I do not fear. What can mere flesh do to me?.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

I am yours in Christ,

Be not unaware

Christ baptism share

In His death we dare

Raised from the snare

 

Of death we daily stare

Giving all glory to the Father’s care

Living in the newness of life’s fair

United with Him in Resurrection’s prayer

 

Done away with old self’s flair

Slavery no more to sin’s mare

Absolved from sin dead in Christ

Living for God in Christ’s Light

 

He lives for God dead to sin

Once and for all sin’s death limb

No power of death we comprehend

Learn from God Eternal Life begins
