Yes, “Sunday’s coming,” but it is not here yet. Skipping to Sunday skips the real and necessary grief that that we need (or at least I need) to feel before the Resurrection and many other times in life.
Before Sunday, let me grieve Jesus’ torture and death along with the innumerable other evils in the world right now. Let me grieve my own sins and shortcomings along with what they apparently required of the Son of God. Let me grieve how far short of his example I fall every minute of my life.
On Sunday, I will take all the hope, forgiveness, and love that I can get, but for now, let me grieve.
