SENSE-ING THE CROSS – JESUS TASTES!
March 18, 2018 …. 5th Sunday in Lent
Can you recall the last time you were really, really thirsty? I mean, when your mouth was dry as cotton and your lips were parched and your throat felt scratchy as a porcupine?
Perhaps it was on a hot summer day after a long hike on a mountain trail. Or after spending two hours mowing the lawn. Or sitting in the outfield bleachers screaming at a baseball game. Or after taking a dose of antibiotics for a sinus infection.
Thirst is the most basic, the most extreme of human cravings. We long to taste a drink of something cool and refreshing.
