It is finished

It’s Easter. It’s Good Friday today. Or Long Friday as it’s called in Danish. It’s a day of sorrow. Jesus dying on the cross on the hill outside of Jerusalem in Israel. Many people today have decided that today is irrelevant. What Jesus did is irrelevant they tell you. They are fine on their own. They don’t need anybody dying on the cross for them. Many people ignore the man hanging on the cross. They just don’t care. Others oppose him and laugh at him. Other people have made up their own religions trying to get around the fact that the man hanging on the cross more than 2000 years ago was and is the very Son of God. There simply is no hope without him.

Jesus, I choose to thank you for what you did for me. I thank you for the perfect sacrifice. I thank you for your love for me. I thank you for the cry that shattered the rocks, tore the curtain and opened up graves, where you yelled out: “IT IS FINISHED!”. It is finished. It’s a done deal. Nothing separates man from God anymore. Only ourselves and our choice to ignore him can separate us from God today and for all eternity. All that’s required to be with God today and forever more is to put your faith in Jesus Christ and admit that you need him to save you from yourself and your own attempts of making life work where you end up sinning against God’s will for your life.

It is finished. No more important words have ever been spoken. It is finished is what Jesus will always say to any of his children when they come and want to discuss their sins and faults with him. It is finished, there is nothing to talk about from Jesus’ perspective. It’s done. I can’t come up with a sin, think a thought or have a feeling that isn’t covered by those words. Nothing can separate me from Jesus ever again. Because it is finished!

Jesus, I thank you that it is finished. I thank you that nothing I do, say, think or feel or don’t do, say, think or feel will ever separate me from you. I thank you that you live inside of me. I thank you that you love, accept and like me just the way I am – not the way I could be or feel like I should be.

Jesus, I celebrate you! You are my only hope! And I’m so thankful for the life I’ve found in you. I wouldn’t trade it for anything!

Happy Easter!

Blessings, Torben
