FINISHED


John 19:30

"When He had received the drink, Jesus said, 'It is finished.' With that, He bowed His head and gave up His spirit." NIV

"When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, He said, 'It is finished.' And He bowed His head, and gave up the ghost." KJV

Jesus' last words from the cross were not a weak mumbling to say He couldn't take any more torture. They were a loud shout to let the world know He had done the Father's will, He had conquered death and Satan, and He took all the responsibility of our sin and made us pure. He had succeeded as the perfect sinless lamb of God. It was done.


Heavenly Father, all praise, glory, and honor belong to the Son whom You gave to us and who completed the work You gave Him to do. Help us to understand just what that means for us as sinful humans, to know He took the punishment for all our wrong doings and sits at your right hand to intercede for us until He gets us where You are. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Hi Bobbi,
I read your last two post. I am so blessed to see such truth and hope filled posts from someone in your profession. This world needs more Christian Psychologists! The issues you help people with are very heavy, but you have the answers for them in Christ Jesus! May God richly bless you and your work. "Do not grow weary in doing good" Truth is powerful! He is Truth!
God bless you this glorious Easter day!
