79. Waiting

Hourglass Quilt Block

The next block in the Bible Sampler Quilt project accompanies the last words of Christ. This is a tough passage, I find it extremely difficult to reflect on the suffering and death of Jesus. I am not going to delve deep into those words, rather, I’ll focus on the hourglass.

It’s Saturday today, and Jesus’ body is in the tomb. His followers are scattered and confused. They’re waiting, and unsure exactly what it is they’re waiting for. But we know how it’s going to go. We know that Sunday will dawn with miraculous glory. The hope that sustained the disciples was fulfilled when Jesus returned.

The hope that sustains us will be fulfilled when Jesus returns.
