Sometimes I lie in bed and think of all the things that are unfinished from my day: dishes, laundry, a Bible study, my meal plan for the week, work projects, homeschool activities, the text I started but didn’t send, home organization projects half done, etc. It can be so tempting to focus on what didn’t get done and lean in to the feeling that there just isn’t enough time in a day, that I’ll never get it all done, that what I do is never enough.
But this weekend as we celebrated the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus, I was reminded of the great news of the Gospel: IT. IS. FINISHED.
Jesus’s redemptive work on the cross was carried to completion. The barrier between a Holy God and His sinful people was removed, the veil was torn, and the perfect path to salvation was laid. I am so thankful to trust in a Savior who finished what He came to do.
Now I can approach the throne of grace with confidence, not because I have finished everything on my to-do list or because I have perfectly conquered the patterns of sin in my life. I am unfinished yet made whole because I serve the One who finished it for me, once and for all.
