Jesus Needing a Drink

Scripture: John 19:28-30 - After this, Jesus, knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, “I thirst!” 29 Now a vessel full of sour wine was sitting there; and they filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on hyssop, and put it to His mouth. 30 So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.

"I thirst!"
He is weak, He suffers, He hurts

The God-Man experiencing three hours of darkness
Lingering between earth and heaven for our pardon

On the cross deprived of His heavenly norms
Experiencing man’s pain, inflicted by a divine storm

Predetermined to rely on His Father to withstand this task
So through a state of physical dehydration for water, He asked

Our sins have not been dealt with, nor yet to be diminished
His proclamation would be verified once it’s said, "IT IS FINISHED!"

Under this extreme pressure, He keeps His Father’s word
Following a strenuous plan, as His manly being, is purged

Yet, this grand prophecy must be fulfilled
God’s promises, proof, and power will become relevant and revealed

So, Jesus endured death, poverty, sacrifice, and pain
The world must know the debts He paid for our sake in His name

If Jesus took our place at the Cross to reveal our worth
We should take His place by living through Him on earth

Therefore, quenching His thirst demonstrates us dying, then living by divine means
He is daily becoming alive in us, described in Second of Corinthians five seventeen

Prayer: Praise the Lord for the greatest event on earth. Sins we could not pay for ourselves. The Lord Jesus Christ paid our debt. You took the penalty for our sake. You are worthy of so much praise. We honor You Lord! John 3:16 is the driving force of our faith Father. We are assured You love us in the matchless name of Jesus Christ.
