Title: It is Finished!

Notes:

It is Finished

We are God's children!

These are three (3) words Christ said when he was on the cross - "it is finished" (see John 19:30). These are probably the most powerful words of His ministry. We all know the story about how Jesus went around doing good, healing people, and casting out demons. We know the story about how Judas betrayed Jesus. And we all know the story about how Jesus suffered for us so that we can have a chance to be reconciled with the Father. We also know the story about the two thieves who were crucified with Him. Many of us know that when He was on the cross He spoke three words before he died. Some of us want to think that this meant that his ministry on earth was finished. But these three words are much more powerful than that.

Sometime we find ourselves questioning if God still loves us. Do you know how much God loves you? (if not you should look back at the lesson from March 12, 2017 titled "Knowing the Love of Christ")

When Jesus died on the cross his earthly ministry was done but it carried on with the disciples! Saying His ministry was far from finished. Whatever challenges you have in life, you must know that they are finished!

Whatever challenges in life you have, they are finished in Christ. When you are going through challenges in life, think on these things: the things that are just in life, those things that are good and pure (Philippians 4:8), and those things you have heard and received (Philippians 4:9). The devil will try to bring bad and corrupt things to your mind. The devil will try to tell you that you cannot make it, that you are doomed. But you need to remind the devil that "it is finished!" Many people go through struggles in their life because they don't know these three words.

Be careful for nothing - give it all to God in prayer and meditation (Philippians 4:6). Thank God and He will give you peace because it is finished. He will keep your mind (Philippians 4:7). Do you ever go through struggles in your life and wonder if you are going to make it? I can say that I have. Give it to the Lord your God and he will see you through it. Remind yourself that Jesus took care of it all while He was on the cross. For your troubles and addictions - remind yourself that it is finished!

Cast all of your cares on Christ (1 Peter 5:6-7). There is no reason to worry. Sometimes we allow the devil to torment our lives and we feel there is no way to make it through. In these times we need to remind ourselves that we are free indeed (John 8:36) because it is finished. Don't doubt yourself. Rejoice in the Lord (Philippians 4:4). We don't have to handle our issues, our problems, or our troubles by ourselves because we are free indeed because it is finished!

Jesus defeated the devil (Matthew 4:3-11). He said that man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that comes out of the mouth of God (Matthew 4:4). Jesus was using the Word against the devil. We must do the same. Defeat the tempter with the Word of God. Say "devil it is finished! Stop tempting me devil because it is finished!"

These weren't just words used to say that Christ's earthly ministry was over. They mean so much more.

The devil will try to tempt you. The devil will try to trip you up. Don't argue with the devil; resist him; tell the father of lies that it is finished! Use these words on him and he will flee.

The devil isn't going to let us have beautiful days unless we tell him it is finished! Be built up on the Word because it is going to set you free. Talk to your mountain; tell your troubles, addictions, and cares "it is finished!"
