John 19:30 When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.
Lord, draw me back to your cross again and again. Reassure me that I am forgiven by your complete and perfect sacrifice for the sins of the whole world, including my sin. When I am troubled by my sins and doubt, let me hear your words “It is finished.” Often I want to do something to earn your love and forgiveness. Teach me, Lord, that I cannot earn the gift you have completed with your suffering on Calvary. Then fill me with gratitude and thanks for your gift of grace. Grant me strength so that my life of service and obedience reflects my love for you! Amen.
