There was a bloody mess

36 Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be delivered over to the Jews. But my kingdom is not from the world.”
37 Then Pilate said to him, “So you are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. For this purpose I was born and for this purpose I have come into the world-to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.”

The Great Exchange

28 After this, Jesus, knowing that all was now finished, said (to fulfill the Scripture), “I thirst.”
29 A jar full of sour wine stood there, so they put a sponge full of the sour wine on a hyssop branch and held it to his mouth.
30 When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished,” and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.
John 19:28-30

Paraphrasing prayer

Dear Dad, heaven is your home, you are Different from everything I thought I knew, I want your will for me, here and there, and everywhere, give me just what I need for today, and forgive me for my attempts to run from you, to ignore you, and to worship everything except you, forgive the brothers that want to hurt me, protect me from myself, for this is your Dwelling place, you are in control of all of it, and help me to praise You alone for every breathe I take! In the Matchless name of Jesus, Amen
Christ Reigns!
