Good Friday "It Is Finished" Bible Journaling Page
Hey, y'all! Today is the first official day of my spring break, and I couldn't be happier! I slept late, and I had a lot of extra time to spend in God's Word, which I loved since it's Good Friday. I completed a new Bible journaling entry, and I wanted to share it with y'all, along with the heart behind it. I'm calling it my "It Is Finished" page.
I love to do She Reads Truth devotions daily, and I've really been enjoying the Lent Study. This week has been focusing on the last few days of Christ's life in real time. Today, Good Friday, focused on His death.
Whenever I've read "It is finished" (John 19:30) in the past, I've always felt sad because I was focused on how much pain Christ was in and how abandoned by his friends he must have felt, but today when I read this verse, I felt differently. I had a brand new revelation. I realized that even though "It is finished" meant the death of Christ at that moment, it also meant the death of SIN, DEATH itself, and the GRAVE!
I love what Russ Ramsey wrote in Lent Day 45, "Never before or since has more been lost and gained at the same time as at Jesus’ crucifixion." He goes on to talk about how for everyone who witnessed Christ's death, it probably did feel like the end of everything, but looking back, we can see it as the beginning.
It was the beginning of humans no longer needing animal sacrifices to atone for their sins because Jesus settled our debt once and for all. So while I thought about making this entry look serious and a bit sad, I couldn't keep myself from using happy colors to convey how awesome it is that we now have, as my tab says, life forevermore! So while we focus on the amazing sacrifice that Christ made for us on that Friday, let's rejoice in what that sacrifice meant for us because we know that SUNDAY IS COMING!
