It Is Finished
As Jesus cried out in resolute completion, “It is finished!” the earth trembled and quaked. The sun hid its face from the terrible sight. The birds of the air held their breath in silence, and God ripped the temple curtain to the Most Holy Place wide open.
As the sun raised its head on Sunday morning, so the Son of God raised His head from the grave. The birds found their voice and sang the anthem of victory. Light poured out from that grave to a perishing world. No longer bound to the ties of death and darkness, we proclaim a risen Savior! Now that God opened the curtain to the Most Holy Place, mankind may enter the throne room of grace without a mediator, save the Son.
The total price of sin Jesus willingly paid in full. The cost was more incredible than we knew, but we were free. Live! Live in that most glorious truth: Freedom is ours!!!
