When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished,” and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. John 19:30 ESV
Lord Jesus, You came into this world to do Your Father’s will. You came to be the Word Incarnate, The ultimate communication of who God is. You came to be the last Passover Lamb, the ultimate Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. When 3pm came on Good Friday, You had experienced 6 hours on that cross in agony bearing our sins, demonstrating Your and the Fathers love for us, and being our substitute. Now in the ninth hour of the day redemption has been accomplished, propitiation is complete, reconciliation has been made possible, justification is a reality, The Old Testament pictures and promises have all been fully brought to fruition. You have done everything humanly and divinely possible to bring us, to bring me, to God and HALLELUJAH, IT IS FINISHED!
