After this, Jesus, knowing that all was now finished, said (to fulfill the Scripture), “I thirst.” A jar full of sour wine stood there, so they put a sponge full of the sour wine on a hyssop branch and held it to his mouth. John 19:28-29
Dear Savior, When we hear you cry out “I thirst” it should cause us to shake our heads in disbelief. You by Your word created all the oceans of this world. You by an utterance from Your lips made all the lakes, rivers and streams and it is by those same lips that the water molecules of H2O are held together. It is unimaginable that now those same lips, Your lips, would pray in agony “I thirst”. The great irony and the great agony are demonstrations of Your great matchless love for us. I can never thank You enough but I will surely try. Amen.
