John 19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
God is so good! Did you see the words, It is finished! Salvation has been paid for! I say these are the most important words in history. Man has always known there is a God. He is always trying to worship Him and find Him. He has built altars and idols since the beginning.
Man wants to know that things are ok. They do good things. Man denies that God exists so that he can feel good about himself. Man sets himself up as God so that he can say that everything is alright but regardless of what man does he knows that something isn’t right.
Since man fell in sin he has needed a way to get back to God. Man has tried everything but nothing works. At the end of the day man knows that something is just not quite like it should be.
But then Jesus came. He is the author and finisher of our faith. Hebrews 12:2. He is God in human flesh John 1:14. He came to earth a sinless one and died for sinful man. The holy One became sin for us so that we could become the righteousness of God in Him. 2Corinthians 5:21
The beautiful thing is that Jesus tells us that it is finished. That means that He has done all that is necessary to be made right with God. He didn’t start the ball rolling and expect us to finish it. He didn’t tell us how to begin pleasing God.
He just went to the cross and satisfied the justice and holiness of God.
