It is Finished!

Right before His death on the cross, the Lord Jesus said these words: “It is Finished!” Why did He say this? What was He talking about? His life? His hopes? His mission? Amazingly, in these few words we find truth deeper than the ocean. In one way, Jesus’ words here give us the whole message of the Bible in a single sentence. Not only do they show us the great difference between the message of Jesus and every other religion in the world, but they also show us how we can be fully forgiven for all our sins, freed from fear of God’s judgment, and accepted by God into Heaven.

John 19:30 – “When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, ‘It is finished,’ and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.”
