IN TODAY’S WORSHIP The 7 Greatest Words of Love. The weeks leading up to Easter we are listening to Jesus’ final words that He spoke while giving His life for us on the cross. Today we hear His fifth statement. Just before He died, near 3 pm in the afternoon, Jesus said, “I Thirst.” Of all His words from the cross, this is the most human, and the simplest. The thirst of a person crucified was agonizing. The physical pain Jesus endured in His body was awful. In a lesser way, we suffer pain and sickness in our bodies. Jesus understands what we face, and this invites us to trust Him!
