'It is finished"

On Sunday, pastor taught about "Famous last Words." When it was time for Christ to die, He was concerned for others, not himself. But pastor didn't really touch on Jesus' very last words, "It is finished." So I'm going to talk about that. What was finished? What did He do? Well obviously, the easy answer is that He died for our sins... But I'm going to try to go a little bit deeper...

I think a couple of things were started and ended when Jesus said, "it is finished." These are some: (1). We no longer needed to make sacrifices, because Jesus made it! (2). We could pray, and we wouldn't need priests and stuff. (3). Our sins were paid for. (Hallelujah) (4). His suffering was over. (5).His "life purpose" was fulfilled. (6). etc. (In the etc part, make a comment and tell me something that ended or began when Jesus said "It is finished.") There are definitely a lot more things that are all wrapped up in those three words.

All Christ,

I know you mainly said this, but He made it so we could love God. What I mean is that, instead of living apart from God, He can be part of our life, and we can learn to love Him. Right? Tell me if I got that all wrong!

Hey, that's really funny, because my pastor did a "Famous Last Words" sermon series in March 2008.... Weird....
Btw, I'm really impressed by your blog. I praise God for your maturity, because it's just not visible in any guys your age that I know. (I say this not to puff you guys up, but to build you up.) Keep up the good work!

In Christ,
