December 16, 2021 – Psalm 69:21 & Luke 27

Updated: Dec 17, 2021

It is always amazing to me (as it should be, I think) that the OT prophecies so clearly, in every detail, line up with Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection. When you think about it, no other religion has anything like the historical narrative of the Bible with the many divine promises and clear fulfillments of those promises. Can anyone say, “Testimony that the Bible is true?”


In Psalm 69, David prays for deliverance from persecution. His enemies sought to destroy him: “They gave me poison for food, and for my thirst they gave me sour wine to drink” (Psalm 69:21). What could he do? He could turn to the Lord: “My prayer is to you, O Lord. At an acceptable time, O God, in the abundance of your steadfast love answer me in your saving faithfulness” (Psalm 69:13).


Similarly, at the cross, “The soldiers also mocked him, coming up and offering him sour wine

and saying, ‘If you are the King of the Jews, save yourself!’” (Luke 27:36) But, also, as did David, Jesus looked to his Father and trusted him: “Then Jesus, calling out with a loud voice, said, ‘Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!’ And having said this he breathed his last” (Luke 23:46). Because of his faithfulness, what a story is ours!


I will sing the wondrous story

Of the Christ who died for me.

How He left His home in glory

For the cross of Calvary.

I was lost, but Jesus found me,

Found the sheep that went astray,

Threw His loving arms around me,

Drew me back into His way. --Francis H. Rowley (1886)
