The Work is Finished!

“When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, He said, ‘It is finished:’ and He bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.” - John 19:30

In the Old Testament, the priest would enter the temple to minister, burn incense, offer prayer and sacrifices. But there was one piece of furniture that was not in the Holy of Holies, and that was a chair for the priest to sit upon. Why? Because his work was never finished.

But when Jesus bowed His head upon that cross and cried out, “It is finished!” He was finished, and He sat down at the right hand of God, the Father. The first words that are recorded that Jesus said were: “I must be about My Father’s business.” And His last words were: “It is finished.” He stayed until He finished His Father’s work.

Nothing that you can do will add one measure to His completed work. It is finished! Hallelujah!
