Text: John 19:28-30
After this, Jesus, knowing[a] 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.
What greater love is this that a man should lay down his life for his friends? Jesus laid down his life for the salvation of all mankind. On a cross, the son of God hung bearing the sin of the whole world. Gods wrath was on him, Mans wrath was also on him, but he accepted to die for our sins because he understood the Glory set before us (those who believe in him). He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He did not open His mouth; Like a lamb that is led to slaughter, And like a sheep that is silent before its shearers, So He did not open His mouth. (Isaiah 53:7). On the Cross, Jesus felt shame, rejection… He was spat on, he was accused, he felt pains. At last, he cried out ” It is Finished!” Salvation has come, presented as a free gift for whoever believes in Jesus. Jesus did not Just die, he rose from the death giving us assurance of his resurrection power. Jesus said “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me will live, even though he dies” Do you believe? If you believe, praise God your resurrection with Jesus is assured. If you do not believe, make sure you do not die before believing in Jesus.
Pray this prayer if you want to resurrect with Jesus when you die.
Lord Jesus, thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. I believe in you, I believe you are the son of God sent for the salvation of my soul. I confess you as Lord over my life, wash me from all unrighteousness and accept me as one of your own. Amen.
