40 Days: 40) It is Finished

When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished,” and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. (John 19:30 ESV)

Fully paid. Undeserved.
It’s one thing to have a debt taken care of by someone else. It’s another to mock and beat the debt payer. And now we live in the light of our debt of sin being fully paid…

It is finished.

The need to strive under incomplete circumstances is over. It is finished! The necessity to pursue plights of purpose in peculiar places has been put to proper disposal. It’s over.

I’m entering into rhythmic rest – the beat of my life was totally out of sync with that of our King. But now, I rest without striving, blessed not denying that I’m under the Kings jurisdiction. His record is flawless, I’m no longer restless, his love BEATS me senseless into a synchronized shepherded symphony towards still streams of water.

And the beat goes…

It Is Done
it is done

It Is Done
it is done…
