I Thirst

The Washington Times recorded in its February 16, 2011, this fascinating story about an eighty-four-year-old man by the name of Henry Morello.

Henry was driving north of Phoenix, Arizona, when he realized he was heading in the wrong direction. When he tried to turn around, he got stuck in a ditch. Unable to walk to the main road to get help, he spent five days trapped in his car. To stay alive, he took a rock and cracked open the wiper fluid container in his car and drank the fluid. He even read his car manual in its entirety to pass the time. After he was rescued, doctors were amazed to find him in such good condition.

Those who are thirsty – truly thirsty – know what it is to seek something with a great desire. That level of desire should characterize our walk with God. We should seek Him above all others. He should be our greatest desire. And He has promised that when we seek Him in this way, our search will be rewarded. In the Sermon on the Mount Jesus said, (Matthew 5:6) "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied."

Jesus also understood what it meant to be thirsty. In His final moments upon the cross, He cried out, “I thirst!” Yet, I think there was a lot more to His thirst than we can truly understand. This Sunday, you’re invited to come and join us as we what it means to truly be thirsty.
