DAILY READINGS: 2 Kings 19:1-37; Jeremiah 52:1-34; 1 Timothy 3:1-16

It is finished. John 19:30, KJV
It is enough. Genesis 45:28, KJV

In His own body on the tree the Lord Jesus finished the work. Redemption is complete. Nothing remains to be done, for nothing can be added to a finished work. The holy Sin-bearer has paid the penalty in full and has exhausted the judgment which was due to us. In confirmation of His acceptance of the sacrifice, God has raised Him from the dead, and, like old Jacob, we see the evidence of this and exclaim, “It is enough.” —Jim Flanigan

I need no other argument, I need no other plea;
It is enough that Jesus died, And that He died for me.
