Then he handed him over to them to be crucified.
So they took Jesus, and he went out, bearing his own cross,
to the place called the place of a skull, which is called in Hebrew Gol′gotha.
There they crucified him, and with him two others,
one on either side, and Jesus between them.
Pilate also wrote a title and put it on the cross;
it read, “Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews.”
~ John 19:16-42 (RSV)

It is finished…
I am in another study and we are learning about the different kinds of rest that God calls us to and this line was referenced in a way I have never imagined. When Jesus said It is Finished He wasn’t just talking about his life, his fight with the devil, or his mission to save us. But he was telling us that it is finished for us, we don’t have to work like slaves to produce our worth. He died for us. He made us worthy. We can walk away from our burdens, worry, sin! Our salvation has been won, it has been secured. We have nothing to prove and no matter of work will gain us more love than He has already given us. <3
