Unfinished Business

Re: Verse reading–John 19:28-42 (day one) 
“When he had received the drink, Jesus said, ‘It is finished.’ ”  It is one of my favorite Bible stories.  No words adequately describe this holy moment.  John remembers the last word coming from the Savior’s lips.  Finished!  (It is actually just one word in Greek)  His assignment from God was completely accomplished.  Jesus’ heart knew a deep satisfaction. Were these words spoken/shouted with a smile through parched and bloody lips?  Likely.  All of us can hope the same words will be ours at the end.  Even so, we must be careful lest the case be overstated.  The Lord is still VERY ACTIVE in our world!  Who intercedes for the saints?  The Lord! (see Hebrews 7:25) Who opens hearts to hear the word? (see Acts 16:14)  Who adds to the church those who are being saved? (see Acts 2:47)  Until His glorious return, the Lord will be actively involved with the world!  He has unfinished business with us.
