It’s Finished!

Answering a question in an interview recently brought to memory how deeply in bondage to performance I had been in the years that I “pastored.” It also filled me with almost inexpressible gratitude for Father’s revelation to me that all my striving to be good, do good and fix others accomplished precisely nothing. Nada. Zip.

I used to think that I knew what my part was and what God’s part was – for me and others! What arrogance! I knew little about the easy burden and light yoke. I did know about walking around with a furrowed brow, pinched butt and waking up with diarrhea.

Now I don’t know what my part is anymore, other than trusting in Him. Just believing and receiving, and everything else happens. He prepared the works ahead of time, we just walk in them. It’s pure peace just to hold his hand and walk, because he finished the work at the cross. Everything he’s called us to do is finished. Striving to build something, trying to get people to change – no longer. There’s no more image of holy man that must be maintained and nothing to attain to. All is complete in Christ. It’s Finished.

    David, your post is so right. We live in the light of what God has already accomplished through the cross of Christ. And it is 100% totally finished! “God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them…” This is the Gospel! It is good news that our God is NOT ANGRY! “…it pleased the LORD to bruise him…” to redeem mankind. “…He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied…” What I heard in church for all those years was how angry and upset God was with man, but instead Scripture declares that He is “pleased” and “satisfied”. How long has he been pleased and satisfied? Since the cross? I think so… after all… IT IS FINISHED!!! Keep up the good writing old friend! Abraham
