Devotional Holy Saturday

Scripture Reading: Matthew 28:6

“He is not here; he has risen

, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.”


On Holy Saturday, we stand in anticipation of the resurrection, echoing the angel’s proclamation that Jesus is not in the tomb; He has risen, just as He said. As we reflect on this scripture, Holy Saturday prompts us to enter into the silence and mystery between the crucifixion and the resurrection. How does the anticipation of the empty tomb shape our understanding of hope and new life?

Moreover, Matthew 28:6 assures us of the fulfillment of Jesus’ promise. The Lenten season invites us to embrace the reality of the risen Christ and the hope it brings. May this scripture inspire us to approach Holy Saturday with reverence, anticipating the joy of Easter morning and the transformative power of the resurrection.


Risen Savior, as we wait in anticipation on Holy Saturday, we acknowledge the fulfillment of your promise. May the reality of your resurrection fill us with hope and joy. On this day of quiet reflection, prepare our hearts to embrace the transformative power of the resurrection on Easter morning. Amen.
