April 20 (Holy Saturday)

Read: Luke 23:50-56

A godly man went to Pilate and begged for the body of Jesus. He took it down, wrapped it in linen and put it into the tomb. The women who were at the crucifixion accompanied Joseph on this mission to see where the body would be taken. Then, they all went to their homes because the next day was the Sabbath. There they rested according to the commandments.

What if the women hadn’t obeyed the commandment to rest on the Sabbath? What if they had taken their oils and spices to anoint the body that day instead of the next?

“What ifs” are only voids. They never happened and never will. I firmly believe God has a plan for all of us. Jesus rose again as God had planned. He guides us through our lives by what happened in His life. We must hold dearly to the concrete evidence and not to the “what ifs.”

Everything happens for a reason and only God knows why. By faith, we live and follow what He has done. He has shown us how to live, in love and peace. Obey the commandments, the results are Godly!

Father, help us to accept “what is” and not dwell on the “what if.” Amen.
