“It is finished.”
In the final breath He gave, these were the words.
As you fight the demons in your head,
As you chase after the impossible ideal the world sets upon you,
As you fiercely work your way to the top,
As you run around this maze trap of do this and that,
As you complain to God about your sufferings,
your lack of this and that,
and as you subconsciously doubt about this whole Jesus thing,
– just to name a few bc you know that this blog space wont be enough to list every issue that we have –
Im confident enough to say that each of our shortcomings has been met by these three divine words…It is finished.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
The King who humbled Himself and chose to live in ragged clothes. The perfect One who befriended the sinners. The righteous One who suffered and died on the cross to give a new life to the ill-fated men He loved so dearly. As wide as the sky and as deep and rich as the ocean, His love for you goes on. And three days after, the mocked, beaten, and betrayed rose from the dead. Now He stands victorious. Our King is alive!
I know this love is just too good to be true; too dreamy to believe. But it is. It is true. This is the truth. This is freedom. The freedom we’re made for. This is what Jesus was talking about when He said, “I came to give them life at its fullest.”
This is grace. And this is the life we’re made for. Our Savior died on the cross to to set us free from our past, our mistakes, the slavery of this world, and to give us life with freedom and abundance. He is the love on display for every eye to see. We’re all called to be free. We’re all called to be bold in every circumstance. Fear not for Jesus Christ lives–our King lives!
I know I can’t expound it enough but I pray that the Holy Spirit will be the one to speak to you in such a way that you’d be blown away (Haha). Now get up from your seat and sing to Him your sweet praises. Dance in the rhythm of His great love. Bless the name of the Lord! And let everyone know of the light you’ve found in Christ. The hope that was once just a ray, but now the whole sky.
