Thank you Jesus
for loving me
Today's Scripture: John 19:28-30
As our custom is here, we give thanks to God for the month on the last day of every month. But today, I would like us to thank God specifically for his death and resurrection. It is still Easter season, considering post-resurrection, so we know that Jesus is still appearing to his own people in their many numbers, and that includes you and I.
In today’s scripture, the Bible says,
“Jesus knew that his mission was now finished, and to fulfill Scripture he said,
“I am thirsty.”
A jar of sour wine was sitting there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put it on a hyssop branch, and held it up to his lips. When Jesus had tasted it, he said,
“It is finished!”
Then he bowed his head and gave up his spirit (NLT).
When the 28th verse says, “and to fulfill Scripture”, that sounds like an intentional love to me. Jesus intentionally went through every step, every process, every possible path to deliver you and me by his death on the cross, and to grant us a new life by his resurrection. How amazing!
As this month wraps up today, thank Jesus deeply for loving you intentionally.
Action Point: In thanksgiving and with praise, acknowledge that the death of Jesus on the cross was neither a mistake nor a coincidence, but that it was a deliberate act for your freedom and your dominion.
