YL Freedom Walk Malawi Devotions: Day 7

“IT IS FINISHED”

Today I want to drive our thoughts towards one profound truth. This truth can be summarized in the words of Jesus’ Himself, “it is finished”

When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished,” and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.             (Joh 19:30)

Upon finishing the work that He had come to do on earth, Jesus sealed that chapter of the redemption story with those words.

“It is finished – The sufferings and agonies in redeeming man are over. The work long contemplated, long promised, long expected by prophets and saints, is done. The toils in the ministry, the persecutions and mockeries, and the pangs of the garden and the cross, are ended, and man is redeemed. What a wonderful declaration was this! How full of consolation to man! And how should this dying declaration of the Saviour reach every heart and affect every soul!” Albert Barnes.

Be encouraged as you think about this; that the battle we fight, the freedom we seek was purchased by Jesus with His blood and all has been done that needs to be done. We fight a winning battle from the winning side.
Pray:
Thanking the Lord for the freedom He already purchased.
Declaring the same freedom for the youth in Malawi that it’d break chains & shackles that keep them enslaved.
