2 Samuel 16:1-17:29; Jeremiah 1:1-19; Galatians 3:15-29

It is finished. John 19:30

Not partially done. Or half way done. Or just about done.
When God does something it is all done—to completion! Jesus’
declaration from the Cross is eternal and final. All is done. There
is nothing more we can do or add to merit God’s grace and forgiveness.
Jesus did it all. What a wonderful and comforting truth
for believers today! We can rest in the security of Christ’s atonement
and eternal love for us. It is done! It is finished! Hallelujah!
—Deborah Manera

Jesus paid it all—all to Him I owe,
Sin had left its crimson stain;
He washed it white as snow.
