School is closed in observance of Good Friday.
“It is finished.” What was it that was finished? His life work and His atoning sacrifice on our behalf. He had interposed between our souls and divine justice, and He had stood in our stead, to obey and suffer on our behalf. …That obedience cost Him many a pang and groan. Now it is about to cost him His life; and as he gives away His life to finish the work of obedience to the Father and of redemption for us, He says, “It is finished.” It was a wonderful work even to contemplate; only infinite love would have thought of devising such a plan. It was a wonderful work to carry on for so long; only boundless patience would have continued at it; and now that it requires the offering of Himself, and the yielding up of His earthly life, only a Divine Savior, very God of very God, would or could have consummated it by the surrender of His breath.
