No More Sour Wine

John 19:30

When Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” Then bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.

Jesus suffered incredible thirst upon the cross. When He said, “I’m thirsty!” the soldiers gave Him sour wine, which would only increase His thirst. On the cross, He suffered every pain, lack, need, and void the devil can throw at us in this world. When His thirst could not be satisfied, He willingly gave up His spirit and died. He fulfilled every prophecy of the Messiah, and He finished the work God sent Him to do. He was the perfect sacrifice for our sins.

 For what do you thirst today? Realize that anything this world can give you to quench that thirst will only make you thirstier.  It will not satisfy. Only Christ’s perfect sacrifice can quench the relentless longing of our souls. As Jesus told the woman at the well in John 4:13-14, “Everyone who drinks from this water will get thirsty again. But whoever drinks from the water that I will give him will never get thirsty again – ever!…”

Jesus died so your soul would not have to thirst again. He is a well of living water that never runs dry! He will not deny you or forsake you. Wherever you thirst, come and let Him refresh you today. He took the sour wine so our thirsty souls could be quenched. There is hope for your hopeless situation, and it is found in His perfect sacrifice. Stop relying upon the sour wine of this world, and turn to Jesus, a well of living water that completely satisfies! Jesus endured all the bad to pay the penalty for our sin so we could celebrate Good Friday. Our longing, thirsty soul can find satisfaction through His sacrifice. He is the gospel – our good news!

Have a blessed day!
