In John’s account of Jesus’ life, Jesus’ last words are: It is finished. Though we may think we know what “it” is, perhaps an examination of our lives would reveal that we actually don’t know. In other words, if we examined our lives with the most honesty we can muster, would we find that we’re living like we have something to earn or prove.
The good news of Jesus is that God has finished something in Jesus Christ, which has started something completely new and eternal in us.
So, what is finished? Maybe that’s not a question to be answered as much as it is a question to be carried.
