Mission Accomplished

April 14, 2024

Have you ever left a project unfinished? Our lives are filled with projects that we have never quite managed to complete. We have half-read books on our shelves and piles of junk left abandoned from hobbies we’ve started, but never finished. Thankfully Jesus Christ did not leave the great project of his life unfinished. He got the job done, He accomplished the mission.

Have you ever been at a place in your life where you felt forgotten or forsaken, totally alone? It’s a painful place to be, a place where you feel no one understands or “feels your pain.” But one person does understand, and has felt your pain and has conquered death for you so that you can have eternal life.

It’s hard for us to really embrace the idea that Jesus Christ was as much a man as he was God. But along with the miracles he performed as the Son of God, he also experienced humanity as deeply as we do...and one of the best examples we see is when he, while being crucified, was thirsty. Jesus was human after all, and if he was going save us, if he was going to die in our place, then he needed to be one of us to do it.

As Jesus was growing up, his unique identity as the Son of God and his unique ministry as the Savior of the world must have made for some very interesting family situations. Certainly these family ties were strained during the course of his life, and they were broken altogether at the cross.

The thief on the cross next to Jesus was a criminal in life, the lowest of the low. But he knew his Savior when he met him that day at the place of the Skull outside Jerusalem. Was he just lucky, to be dying next to Jesus? For just at the last possible moment in his earthly life he received the gift of eternal life.

While many millions have been saved already, millions more are still waiting to hear the message of salvation. God has not finished gathering that great multitude that will one day worship at his throne. If they are to hear the message of salvation, it is up to us to proclaim it.

Glory, the after life, is not a place we know in great detail, however, the book of Revelation offers us an interesting glimpse into Heaven. It describes an enormous number of people from all different ethnic groups and places worshipping the Lord in the splendor of holiness.

Suffering in the Christian life is not necessarily to be avoided and neither is it to be accepted with a defeated attitude. The life of the Christian is to be patterned after Jesus Christ’s.

The Bible calls us saints, which means holy ones, because God has separated us from sin and blessed us for His service. Most Christians would agree that we have a need for personal holiness, however, we have difficulty in agreeing as to how this holiness actually comes about.

Believing the message of salvation is not an end in itself, it is only the beginning. We are not merely saved from sin, but we are also saved for God’s glory. God’s glory is commonly revealed in genuine Christian community.

In our rebellion we put Jesus Christ, the son of God, to death. Now our lives are forfeit. But here we see the wonder of God’s adopting grace, that it turns rebels into princes. Through faith in Jesus Christ we become God’s own sons and daughters.
