“When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.” John 19:30
It is during the Easter Season that we are strongly reminded about the sacrifice our Father in Heaven made leading to the death and resurrection of His Son Jesus Christ; an act which gives us a hope of one day living with God in Glory!
On the Cross when Jesus Christ said IT IS FINISHED… His task of reuniting man and God was completed. Thereafter, the disciples under the guidance of the Holy Spirit picked up the mantle to share the message of Christ with whomever they met……. and that is how you and I learnt about God’s great act of love.
Yes, we profess that Jesus Christ is our Lord, Saviour and Master. However, should this be the end of it? The mantle of sharing the love of God has been passed on from generations to our generation. It is now upon you and I to pick up the mantle and let friends, relatives, business associates, workmates learn about the imminent Second coming of The Lord Jesus Christ.
In the story of Rahab, we are challenged to learn that she was not content to be saved alone….she also wanted her whole family to be saved; thus asked for their lives to be spared too. (Joshua 2)
May God give us the grace not to be ashamed of sharing the Gospel; and to do it tirelessly with the loved ones and those known to us.
