it is finished

it is finished

 

it is finished

with Christ’s last words on the cross it was done . . . it was finished.

what? what was finished?  His life?  His ministry? His call?

actually with those words, it is just the beginning.  the beginning for the newness of life.  He came as the atonement – the atonement for our sins, my sin.  the Man who was sinless, took on all the sin of all creation and HE became sin.

it was done – it was finished.

His death is the beginning – the resurrection, pentecost, the day of His return!  His death makes it all complete.  His death makes me complete.  death no longer has victory over me because He became my sin.  sin no longer covers me, sin no longer paints who i am.

 i no longer have to look with shame at the eyes that look back at me in the mirror.  i no longer have to walk in shame, or hide a shadowy aspect of my life.  i no longer deceive myself of who i am.  i am His.

 although the enemy will lie in wait for me, wanting to deceive me, to persuade me, to manipulate me.
yet . . .  he can no longer win.  he is crushed.  the victory is my Savior’s!

i no longer walk in the dark, in the shadowy pathways of life because it is finished.

 

About beegee10

I am a follower of Jesus on the journey of discovering His real, lasting joy through God's grace and thanksgiving. Several years ago, I married my best friend, whom I met in kindergarten many years ago. Life choices took each of us on separate paths, but Divine Appointment brought our paths back together. It's exciting to share this journey with my sweet man - a man who loves God more than he loves me! What a gift!! As a young woman I prayed for God to send a godly man like my daddy to pursue me. I just wasn't listening and abiding when I should have been. Good news in HIS time and in HIS grace, HE did! Not only does my sweet man love me, but he loves my three grown kids as if they were his own. He shares their joys and he hurts when they hurt. I love to hear him pray for each of them daily as we begin and end our days. View all posts by beegee10
