"It Is Finished."

For I determined to know nothing among you

except Jesus Christ, and him crucified. 1 Corinthians 2:2

Life Question: Can You Imagine??

The Easter holiday is two days into the past, but our Savior

and Lord Jesus Christ is ever present! So why bring it up now?

Those of us who are followers and those who seek to be followers,

must understand to the best of our ability, why the crucifixion

of our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ is important. 

Matthew 27:46 "Eloi, Eloi!, lama sabachthani!"("My God, My God! Why 

have you forsaken me?")Jesus cried to his Father as his Father "turned 

away" from him in his suffering. It was in that defining moment,

Jesus felt true separation from his Father and felt the pain of his

Father's abandonment as he took on the weight of our sins.

Luke 23:34 "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they 

are doing." For me personally, what Jesus says to his Father is the 

ultimate understatement! They didn't have the slightest clue who 

they were putting to death because they didn't recognize him as

the Messiah. Christ's prayer for them however demonstrated his 

limitless compassion and his grace.

Luke 23:43 "I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise."

Even as Jesus Christ our Savior hung dying on a cross, He was assuring

the criminal hanging next to him, that he would be with him in paradise.

Why?? Because even at the hour of his death, the criminal recognized 

him for who he was and accepted him into his life and heart.

Luke 23:46"Father, into Your hands I commit my spirit." Jesus willingly gave 

up his soul to the Father's hands, knowing his time of death was near.

He offered himself up as a sinless sacrifice to his Father(Hebrews 9:14)

John 19:26-27 "Dear Woman, here is your son!" and "Here is your mother!".

As death was overtaking Jesus, he committed the care of his mother

to Apostle John, whom he loved. And from that time on, John took her 

into his own home.

John 19:28 "I am thirsty." They put gall in my food and gave me vinegar

for my thirst." Customary at crucifixion.

John 19:30 "It Is Finished." These were the last words Jesus spoke. It meant

that his suffering was over, the work his Father gave him to do(preach the

gospel, work miracles and obtain salvation for us all was accomplished.

Our sin debt was paid.
