30 When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished,” and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.
Meditation on the Sixth Word
We are drawing to the end. Jesus has submitted himself to the full brunt and breadth of what God had intended in Jesus’ death. Jesus looks out toward the crowds, both in front of him and those generations yet unborn, and with the little bit of energy he has remaining, he completes the work for which he was sent. There is nothing lacking or deficient in Christ’s sacrifice for our salvation. He has paid the full price and has closed the book on His work. Jesus has not faltered and he has not failed. “It is finished!” Amen.
