IT IS FINISHED

HOPE TO COPE DEVOTION

IT IS FINISHED

by: Donna Lind


"It is finished." John 19:28


When Jesus was hanging on the cross dying for you and me, he uttered three powerful, life changing words, "IT IS FINISHED", then he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.


These three words "It is finished.", translated in the Greek is the word "Tetelastai".


Tetelastai, which literally means “THE FINISH LINE.”


The root word “Teleo’ is defined as,

1. To bring to an end, complete, fulfill. 2. To perform the last act, to complete a task..


This word Tetelastai was written on documents or receipts in New Testament times indicating that a bill had been PAID IN FULL.


The connection between paid receipts and what Christ accomplished on that cross is quite clear, it is unmistakable that, JESUS CHRIST DIED TO PAY FOR OUR SINS!


READ. THAT. AGAIN.


JESUS was saying,


HE MADE IT TO THE FINISH LINE.


HE DID ALL THAT HE CAME TO DO.


MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.


PAID IN FULL!


THANK YOU JESUS!

IT IS FINISHED!


With JESUS there is always HOPE TO COPE,
