It is finished | John 19: 28-30 | Part 4 of 4

It is finished | John 19: 28-30 | Part 4 We have been embarking on a four part study of the cross of Christ. This study is the conclusion and our focus has been on our English version words: “It is finished” which comes from one word in the original Greek: “tetelestai”. Let's pick up where we left off last time with answering the final interrogative question of “why” was “it is finished”?

Are you slaving for God’s grace? Or are you serving Him from His grace?

VI) The sixth interrogative question is “why” was “it finished”?

The crucifixion of Jesus Christ was carried out to perfection concerning the salvation of mankind from their sin. Why was “it” finished, we ask?

It was finished for you and for me.

It was finished so that we might have hope for eternal life.

It was finished that we might receive forgiveness of sins. Continue reading

It is finished | John 19: 28-30 | Part 3 We are embarking on a four part study of the cross of Christ. This study is part three and our focus has been on our English version words: “It is finished” which comes from one word in the original Greek: “tetelestai”. Let's pick up where we left off last time with answering the interrogative question of “what” was involved in “it is finished”?

Jesus came to make reconciliation between God and man possible: “For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation” (Ro. 5: 6-11). It is finished!

Christian’s Proper Response to The Word of God (James 1:19-27) Part 1 of 3

Christian's Proper Response to The Word of God (James 1:19-27)

Christian's Proper Response to The Word of God (James 1:19-27)

We have been learning very good practical lessons on living the Christian life from the Book of James. The Book, as we learned was written about 46-49 AD. It was authored by James-the younger half-brother of our Lord Savior Jesus Christ. James placed the words to paper of this book in one of his favorite places to be, which is the city of Jerusalem, where, sadly, later, he was martyred for his faith.

In chapter one we learned some lessons on persevering through suffering. We are to understand that trials have the God given purpose of making us whole or complete. Our loving heavenly Father does not want us to lack in anything. However, if we lack wisdom we are told to ask of God Who gives wisdom to everyone who asks in faith without doubting. For the prayer of doubt from a double minded person will have no direction just as a bottle being tossed about in the wild and wavy sea.
