When Jesus had received the wine, he said, “It is finished.” Then he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. - John 19:30
From the shock and grief of Calvary on a dark afternoon come the words that complete this phase of Jesus’ presence on our earth. What ends here has a new beginning in the heart of every believer. We are here today because He was true to the end. We must receive this spirit that He breathes out to us.
Do we see Good Friday as an ending or a beginning? Our faith supplies the answer.
