Thought of the Day April 12 2022 The work the Father sent Jesus to do is finished.

By 11:04 AM


"It is finished!" All is accomplished and completed. The work the Father had sent him to do has been finished. Jesus has accomplished the mission he was given by the Father.


What is finished? The Father’s plan for our salvation has been completed. The sin of Adam and Eve has been addressed, fulfilling the word of God that was said to the serpent: "I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; He will strike at your head, while you strike at his heel." (Gen 3:15) God’s promise in Eden is precisely what happened at the cross. In Christ’s death, he breaks the devil’s power: We read in Colossians: “Having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross” (Colossians 2:15).


Jesus came to confront the power of Satan, to break his strongholds. The gauntlet was thrown at Jesus’ temptations in the desert. Jesus over and over delivered many from the power of Satan. Where Satan thought he had won when Jesus was crucified, Jesus brought the final defeat of Satan. The war has been won. Only the clean-up skirmishes remain. Amen. Thank you Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
