Jesus shows His human side

John 19:28 New Living Translation – Jesus knew that his mission was now finished, and to fulfill Scripture he said,“I am thirsty.”

Prophetic fulfillment of: Psalm 69:21 ‘They put gall in my food and gave me vinegar for my thirst.’
Jesus was suffering.  There was a human side to this suffering.  As Jesus cried out ‘I thirst!’ He gives us a glimpse of His human suffering.  And today we have One who has suffered and was tempted in every way and He can identify with everything you and I will every face.
Hebrews 4:15-16 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet was without sin. Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
Once Jesus had accomplished what He had come to earth to do, He takes a moment to think of Himself and His own physical needs.  As a result, today, you and I can know Someone who is able to satisfy our thirst.  Let Him come and satisfy your thirst right now!

  1. Let’s be alive to God!
    The Star of The Show
    Jesus calls us to Himself
    When The Show begins
    We’re infants – so He humors us
    It’s “Rocky and His Friends”
    Like a little squirrel dressed up
    As a flying superhero
    We give ourselves The Title
    And zoom around the atmosphere Oh!
    I have come to save the day!
    We proclaim with a big smile
    And Jesus is my co-pilot
    So I’m always on top of the pile
    God our Father loves his children
    He is patient as we grow
    So we take another step
    It’s “The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show”
    As we journey with The Moose
    Faithfully by our side
    We get a revelation
    We have to swallow our pride
    “He must become greater”
    He really is The Star
    “I must become less,” but still
    With Him I’ll travel far
    “You must follow me,” says Jesus
    In His eyes I see a twinkle
    He is not MY friend I am HIS
    Jesus is The Star – like Bullwinkle
