Re:Verse passage – John 19:1-30 (day seven)
In the weakness of the crucifixion we hear Jesus living out Scripture perfectly. In Matthew 27:46 Jesus quotes the famous line from Psalm 22, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” and in John 19: 28 Jesus fulfills another line from the Psalms by announcing his thirst. Scripture flows from the mouth of Christ at the most devasting moments of His earthly existence.
My prayer is that we find a similar way. A way that is built upon the Word of God as our foundation so that when the wind and waves of life pummel us the Holy Spirit will bring forth a fortifying Scripture. May we fill our heart and mind with verses that we can cling to in the darkest days.
