2018 – FRIDAY 15 JUNE
IT IS FINISHED
The words of Jesus on the cross of Calvary – IT IS FINISHED – have incredible significance for all of us who believe.
IT IS FINISHED – DECLARES;
1. GOD HAD A PLAN
The greatest truth one can ever acknowledge – is that God showed His love toward us – in that while we were yet sinners – Christ died for us.
The plan was set before time began – as Christ was slain before the foundations of the earth were set in place.
2. GOD PAID THE PRICE
The price for our redemption is not just meeting the demands of justice – but also providing the way to freedom.
The price was huge.
The triune God – separated
The only Son sent to die
The humiliation of becoming flesh
The trial of obedience
The work of the ministry
The tragic end on the cross
3. GOD DID IT FOR ME
No love can compare with the love of God for you and I.
You are the specific cause and completion of God’s great redeeming work.
4. GOD CHANGED HOW IT ENDS
Now for the greatest ending of all time.
Jesus says – IT IS FINISHED
Mankind says – I AM FINISHED
Stop saying I am finished when life strikes an awful blow.
Stop listening to voices saying – you are finished.
You are not finished – because the work of salvation is finished.
The end of every story for those who believe is – It will finish well.
It will turn out for good.
The best is yet to come.
Jesus guarantees it.
REDEMPTION IS COMPLETE
IT IS FINISHED
NOTHING MORE REQUIRED
I AM FREE TO LIVE VICTORIOUS
I AM FREE TO DIE VICTORIOUS
