It’s Saturday and he’s dead. The miracle man who walked on water, healed the sick, and changed water into wine, is dead. The man who claimed to be One with the Father, who tamed the storm tossed sea with a word is dead—the Son of God who said, “Follow me.” To the cross? Countless martyrs have, and to the stake and the chopping block and the gallows and incarceration. Sunday’s coming, but you cannot dodge the midday darkness of Good Friday, if called, and bask in the eternal light of Easter Sunday morning. Will you stand for God’s truth as our world spirals into madness? Think on this—count the cost—in the silence of this Saturday.

“Then Jesus said to his disciples, ‘If anyone desires to come after me, let him deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?’” (Matthew 16:24-26)
