3/30/13 Daily Devotion

John 19:30 When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

“It is finished.” While those were the last words of Jesus before He died upon the cross of Calvary, He was not finished with the plan of God. At that moment, the first part of God’s plan came to completion. No longer would there need to be a sacrificial lamb’s blood spilled, for the lamb of God would be the finality of all sacrifices. It was finished, but the best part was just about to begin. While that which Jesus had to endure was terrible, it was necessary. Without the death of Jesus, there would be no conquering of death. Without the death of Jesus, there would be a continuation of the Old Testament. Without the death of Jesus, this world would be inherently lost. Yes, at that moment part one was finished, but praise and glory be to God that three days following, Jesus arose from the dead.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, Your sacrifice on the cross was for me, an undeserving sinner. I am sorry that I have a propensity towards sin, but I am grateful that You died for me. Thank You!!
