Lent Devotional • Day 45

Good Friday (Apr. 2)

It Is Finished

Narrated by Rod Muench

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

Since the dawn of time, the curse and consequences of sin have victimized the human race. By his death Jesus has overcome the curse and brought life and immortality to light. As that Friday came to a close on Calvary, his triumphant cry pierced the darkened air: “It is finished!”

By his wounds we are healed. Trust his word completely: It is finished! Jesus did everything necessary for your salvation. Do not allow doubt or feelings of guilt to sabotage your faith. Your eternal future is in his nail-pierced hands. Count on his sacrifice and promise, and live confidently, hopefully, joyfully until his triumphant return.

REFLECT: Remember that Christ has put all evil to an end on this day.

PRAY: Let my life be lived in loving praise of you, my all-sufficient Savior and Lord. Amen.
