It is Finished – No Helpless Cry

April 22, 2011, by Rob, category blog

it is finished

“It is finished” is but one word in the original, yet in that word is wrapped up the Gospel of God; in that word is contained the ground of the believer’s assurance; in that word is discovered the sum of all joy, and the very spirit of all Divine consolation.

“It is finished.” This was not the despairing cry of a helpless martyr; it was not the expression of satisfaction that the termination of His sufferings was now reached; it was not the last gasp of a worn-out life; No, rather was it the declaration on the part of the Divine Redeemer that all for which He came from Heaven to earth to do, was now done; that all that was needed to reveal the full character of God has now been accomplished; that all that was required by the Law before sinners could be saved had now been performed; that the full price of our redemption was now paid.
The Seven Sayings of the Saviour on the Cross by Arthur W. Pink
