Water and the Word: I Am Thirsty

John 19:28 After this, when Jesus knew that all was now finished, he said (in order to fulfill the scripture),

“I am thirsty.”

It wasn’t thirst

that fulfilled holy writ.

No, that sort of longing

is the kind of need

that’s supposed

to draw people together

in a concerted effort

to quench the void;

village to village,

neighbor to neighbor,

well to well,

bucket to bucket;

dipper to dipper;

garrafone to garrafone.

Matthew 25:25b

“I was thirsty

and you gave me

something to drink.”

“Let living water flow

for all God’s children.”

So let it be prayed,

so let it be practiced.
