It is Finished

When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost  (Jn. 19:30 KJV).

It is finished showing an image of Jesus on the cross

Jesus said the powerful words  “it is finished” as He hung on the cross, dying for the sins of humanity. An important question to ask is: what is finished? The scriptures do not directly give us an answer to this question. We know that after His death, He continued to hell, completed the defeat of Satan, rose from the gave, ascended up on high and is seated at the right hand of God. There was still some spiritual work to be done even after His death. 

However, as He hung on the cross about to die, we know for sure that the earthly phase of His life, which was crowned by His sufferings( the cup He had to drink) was finished. Whatever price that needed to be paid for humanity to be saved for all eternity has been paid. There was nothing else He needed to do. He only had to perfect this finished work in His life after physical death.

Jesus is still speaking these words to us today that “it is finished”. It is done. This dimension of the work of our salvation is completed. You do not need to repeat it. There is still some work to do, but it is no longer a duplication of what He has already done. Rest in your Savior. You do not need to work to be blessed. You are blessed. You only need to work out the blessing. You do not need to cry and beg   God to do something for you. There is nothing else He could do for you that was not done in Christ. Learn to receive. Learn to trust your Savior. Learn to walk in the life He has given you!


Is there something else God needs to do for you to be blessed or free?


If it is finished, it means it is finished! Move on to receiving and enjoying abundant life until it overflows! Stop struggling. Believe and enter into His rest( Heb. 4:1-3)


Thank the Lord for the sacrifice He made for us.
