TOPIC: WHY HE REFUSED THE MYRRH! (Scroll to read ODM 28th February 2021 Devotional Scripture)
Scriptures: MARK 15: 20-32
20 And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple from him, and put his own clothes on him, and led him out to crucify him.
21 And they compel one Simon a Cyrenian, who passed by, coming out of the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to bear his cross.
22 And they bring him unto the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, The place of a skull.
23 And they gave him to drink wine mingled with myrrh: but he received it not.
24 And when they had crucified him, they parted his garments, casting lots upon them, what every man should take.
25 And it was the third hour, and they crucified him.
26 And the superscription of his accusation was written over, The King Of The Jews.
27 And with him they crucify two thieves; the one on his right hand, and the other on his left.
28 And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was numbered with the transgressors.
29 And they that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ah, thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days,
30 Save thyself, and come down from the cross.
31 Likewise also the chief priests mocking said among themselves with the scribes, He saved others; himself he cannot save.
32 Let Christ the King of Israel descend now from the cross, that we may see and believe. And they that were crucified with him reviled him.
Message: Our Daily Manna for Sunday 28th February 2021 ODM Devotional
Matthew records that as Jesus went to the cross, “They gave Him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when He had tasted thereof, He would not drink” (Matthew 27:34). Mark described the drink as wine mingled with myrrh (Mark 15:23). As a pharmacist, I know that VINEGAR is a sour tasting acetic acid drink and MYRRH IS A PAIN RELIEVER (an analgesic); it also has anti-inflammatory effects and reduces body weight, etc. From tests on mice, chemists at the University of Florence in Italy, have found that molecules in myrrh act on the brain’s opioid receptors, explaining its PAINKILLING ACTION!
The drink offered to Jesus was a cheap Roman vinegar wine, MIXED WITH A DRUG (MYRRH) to dull the senses. It was the custom of the Romans to offer a man being crucified DRUGGED WINE so that he might more easily endure his cross. Jesus refused the wine however, apparently so that He could go through His suffering with a clear mind AS A HUMAN BEING and this was to enable Him TAKE YOUR PAIN! Wow! Yes! He was both God and MAN, so He needed to FEEL YOUR PAIN as a man! As He neared death, Jesus said, “I thirst!” (John 19: 28).
One of the prominent effects of crucifixion was DEHYDRATION which leads to a STRONG DESIRE FOR WATER (THIRST) due to the loss of body fluids through open body wounds and perspiration. The LORD refused the Vinegar mixed with MYRRH (Mark 15: 23) but He took the ordinary Vinegar (John 19: 29). He took the ordinary SOUR (acidic) VINEGAR because at the point of death, He needed to say His final words: His parched lips and throat needed moisture, so He accepted the vinegar; but rejected the one that would make Him not to feel your PAIN!
So, in this year 2021, always know that the God who TOOK YOUR PAIN will never DENY YOU ANYTHING GOOD! Use today’s devotional to worship Him and re- fire your CONFIDENCE in Him! 2021 is your year!
