(I am writing this post at the intermission of a play, Upon this Rock, that my children are performing in. I have 15 minutes before intermission is over so please excuse any grammar/spelling errors)
“IT…IS…FINISHED” is the theme of this year’s play. The play has tagged these “3 simple words” as the most important words ever spoken by the most important person that has ever lived. I have to say I agree.
As a Christian, those 3 simple words mean more than any inspirational quote, any song lyric, or any thing else I have heard. It signifies that all Jesus Christ came to do on earth was complete. Mission accomplished! Jesus dying on the cross was enough to allow me to live my life, and more abundantly, in relationship with God. Ensuring that even after this life I have an even better life with Him forever. AWESOME!!!
My hope for myself, and for you, is that at the end of our lives we can say those same 3 simple words, “it is finished” knowing that we accomplished the mission of our lives. We are here for a reason, let’s live our lives with purpose and make sure we have finished what was most important in our lives and the lives of our loved ones.
Intermission almost over….back to the show.
Question: What important work is waiting for you to finish?
Wonderful post. So much truth in these words. We were created for a purpose. It brings such clarity to everything. How blessed we are to know this truth. Blessings to you and your family.
Thanks Kathi! Blessings to you as well!
Love the post and the pic! will definitely hav to share with the hubby
So true. Defining ones purpose can be a challenge. Understanding our purpose from God’s perspective – even more challenging. But I certainly aspire to search for and understand my purpose and try to teach my children the same. Wonderful thought-provoking post. Thanks for sharing — and making me think.
Hey Tawnee! My pleasure, glad you liked and found it thought-provoking!
And, if our lives are finished before we FEEL our mission is, let us know that what we did do was enough and that “It is finished”
