The Preparation Day
“This all happened on Friday, the Day of Preparation, the day before the Sabbath.”
Mark 15:42 NLT,
Did you know that there is actually a day that is called the day of Preparation? Most versions of the Bible translate Preparation with a capital P. It is a significant day. It is an important day. Read also John 19:14, 31 and 42.
The day of Preparation is the day before the Sabbath, the rest day.
In the very beginning of time, God established the principle of a day of rest. It is His gift to us. He gave us six days to work, but one day to rest. But, as with many of God’s gifts, we often do not realize their importance, or even their blessing. I have to confess, especially being a workaholic, that although I have always known the principle of the day of rest, I have not always been successful in doingit.
