“Later, knowing that all was now completed, and so that the Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, ‘I am thirsty.’ A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus’ lips.”

John 19:28,29 (NIV)

Meditation

Jesus’ fifth word on the cross led to something important happening. Hyssop was used to lift the wine to Jesus’ parched mouth. Hyssop sprinkled lamb’s blood on the doors of Israelite homes the night they were delivered from captivity in Egypt. Jesus is the Lamb of God whose blood is shed and delivers us from sin. Have you asked Jesus to deliver you?
