It Is Finished!

Jesus said: “It is finished.”
~John 19:30 (NRSV)
When things come to an end they come to an end. What Jesus finished is finished for good. No stain or stench remains over the saved. Their Saviour has done it.
What we finish can, just as well, be finished if we say so.
We can just as easily start afresh, any time, anywhere. And though we carry about in our mortal bodies the representation of our person, a person entrenched in a personality not easily changed, we do still choose.
All good things come to an end—like all lives. It is also our hope that bad things do, too.
