John 19

John 19:30 “Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a spunge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth.”

“It is finished” what an exciting statement!

The way of salvation was complete; no longer necessary was the laying of hands on an animal’s neck while the throat was cut so that symbolically the sins would be transferred. No longer necessary the thousands upon thousands of lambs, doves, cattle to be slain. No longer only the Levites who could come before the God of heaven. No longer was salvation only for the Jews.

I don’t think I grasp the full meaning of those words, however I am so grateful that they’re true!


Jesus thank you for dying for my sins… thank you for dying for my salvation… Father I thank you for loving us even though I was enslaved to sin… thank you for setting me free from sin that it is no longer my taskmaster… thank you for making me a new creature… Please Lord burden my heart with the souls of the lost… give me the desire to see souls saved… Please Father do a work in me so that you can do a work through me….
