It Is Finished!

"When Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, 'It is finished!' Then bowing His head, He gave up His spirit."

(John 19:30, HCSB)

Larry Moyer writes: "What makes the gift [of eternal life] so amazing is that Jesus Christ paid the price when He died in our place on a cross and declared, 'It is finished' (John 19:30)....God desires that we proclaim the gospel clearly. He longs for all to understand His Son's announcement, 'It is finished' (John 19:30)....'It is finished' means it is finished....The Cross of Christ cries out, 'be satisfied with the thing that satisfies God.' God was [and is] satisfied only with His Son's death as sufficient payment for our sins. That's why Christ declared, 'It is finished.'" (Moyer, 21 Things God Never Said [Grand Rapids: Kregel Publications, 2004], 22, 40, 71, 76.)
