Day 109 - John 19:28-30
Points to Ponder:
1.What do you learn about Jesus from his actions in this section?
2.What was Jesus concerned about in his final moments?
Later, knowing that everything had now been finished, and so that Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, “I am thirsty.” John 19:28
Lord Jesus, you were fully aware of all that was going on. You knew what had taken place. You knew what the Scriptures had foretold. And now, in your last moments, you were purposeful to actively do what the Scriptures had foretold. This was not some accident, you actively purposed God’s plan and purpose for you. Even now, when you were close to death you did not sit back and wait for God’s will to happen. You went out and you did it! You called for a drink and received the drink to completely finish up all that God sent you to do and to fulfill. If you had not fully paid the price for our sin and fully completed all the work that God sent you to do, then we would have no salvation. But Jesus you did it all! You suffered for my sin and paid the price! You completed and fulfilled every promise that God had ever made. You are truly worthy, dearest Jesus, of all glory and power and might. Because you were slain! And by your blood I am a saint of God! Worthy is the Lamb who was slain! Worthy are you of all glory and praise. Let all the earth give you glory. Amen.
