It is Finished

Jesus’ words on the cross “it is finished” have been immortalized in theology. Theologians talk about “Jesus finished word on the cross.” Not taking anything away from God awesome grace in that work….. but was it finished at that point? Or did Jesus still have to go to hell? Ascend to the Father? Pray for us?

Well of course, Jesus was right when He said “it is finished.” It was. By faith.

This realization was very meaningful to me. Hope it is to you. Just now posted along with confessions from the Bible. This might be helpful if you are going through a though time. BTW, I found it most helpful to actually read them out loud myself — even more than play so many sermon tapes myself. Try one and then the other. Tapes, er, recordings are very helpful if you can’t seem to do it yourself, but I do encourage laying your eyes on the text, spending time with it with God, and actually proclaiming them out loud yourself. All good. Get strong.
