Holy Saturday

Holy Saturday, April 15, 2017 Psalm 16:10

Psalm 16:10 English Standard Version (ESV)

10 For you will not abandon my soul to Sheol,
    or let your holy one see corruption.[a]

Because of his enduring relationship- with the given and sustainer of life, David is confident that the righteous will endure despite physical death. This psalm prophesies Jesus’ resurrection. (See Acts 2:25-26)

David takes delight in an unwavering commitment to the Lord in both life and death. This ought also to be our attitude and joy, for He has made known to us the path of life. We have a beautiful inheritance: life with God forever in the kingdom of heaven.

O God, Creator of heaven and earth: Grant that, as the crucified body of your dear Son was laid in the tomb and rested on this holy Sabbath, so we may await with him the coming of the third day, and rise with him to newness of life; who now lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen 1
