The Seven Last Words of Jesus
“I am thirsty.” John 19:28
It is easy to understand in His humanness that Jesus was thirsty having hung on the cross for many hours without food or drink.
This statement has implications beyond physical thirst. Ponder and pray on the concept of Jesus as giver of living water. “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but those who drink of the water that I will give them will never be thirsty. The water that I will give will become in them a spring of water gushing up to eternal life.” John 4:13-14
It grieves the heart that Jesus could be thirsty in any way, even for a short time on the cross.
