 Instead, one of the soldiers pierced Jesus' side with a spear, bringing a sudden flow of blood and water. John 19:34

Today being Good Friday I thought we will meditate on a scene from Golgotha. I know many of us are devastated remembering the sufferings our Lord bore on our behalf. Rest assured He is alive and well! Indeed He overcame the sting of death!

John accounts for an incident at the cross. As part of making sure Jesus was dead, one of the soldiers pierced a spear through Him bringing a sudden flow of blood and water. Medical terms explain this to be a ruptured pericardium membrane which surrounds the heart. Clearly He suffered much deeper than our common perception of just the nails to the hands and feet and the crown of thorn. His body was literally torn... It's all for me, for you, for us, for humanity... to once for all atone for our sins!

There is a striking similarity to this scene in the old testament which reads, "Then Moses raised his arm and struck the rock twice with his staff. Water gushed out, and the community and their livestock drank" Numbers 20:21

Let us pray that not a single drop of His blood go wasted but save the mankind for which it was shed. He is our Rock and Living Water flows from Him. Let us pray that not a single drop of this flowing water go wasted but refresh the weary souls of the mankind.

Let us remember His sufferings not just today, but every single day! Blessed Good Friday to you all!
