Some Words on Saturday

“We don’t typically talk a lot about Saturday in church. We spend plenty of time on Good Friday, which of course we should. Friday is the day redemption happened through the shedding of Christ’s blood. Friday is a very important day.

Nobody would argue that we shouldn’t celebrate Easter Sunday. Jesus conquered death so we can have life. It doesn’t get any better than Easter Sunday.

But what about Saturday? It seems like a day when nothing is happening. In reality, it’s a day full of questioning, doubting, wondering and definitely waiting. It’s a day when we wonder if God is asleep at the wheel or simply powerless to do anything about our current problems.

While we don’t spend a lot of time talking about Saturday, so much of our life here on this earth is lived out feeling trapped in “Saturday.” I’m trying to get to a place in my life where I can embrace ‘Saturday.’ I’m trying to get to a place where I can view the wait as a type of preparation for what God might be doing in my life.”

“Stuck in Saturday,” Pete Wilson
