Always a Finisher

After this, Jesus, knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, “I thirst!” Now a vessel full of sour wine was sitting there; and they filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on hyssop, and put it to His mouth. So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit. (John 19:28-30 NKJV)

Jesus was a finisher, not a quitter. He told His disciples, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work” (John 4:39). So as He hung on that cross, He knew “that all things were now accomplished. To this day, He is in the business of completing the work He starts in people. The apostle Paul wrote, “Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ” (Philippians 1:6). Towards the end of his life, Paul could testify of God’s finished work in his own life by saying, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith” (2 Timothy 4:7). You can count on Jesus to finish the work He has started in your life because He always finishes what He starts.
