Why did Jesus cry “It is finished”?

The gospels record 7 last words or statements that Jesus uttered from the cross. The last one was a commitment of his spirit to his Father just before he died. But preceding that was a loud and triumphant cry, “It is finished.”

What was finished?

Jesus lived a sinless life, resisting and overcoming all of the enemy’s temptations, and presented a perfect, spotless sacrifice on the cross to pay for mankind’s sins. By atoning for our sins, Jesus brought us back into right standing with the Father as though we had never sinned. It was for this purpose that Jesus came and lived a sinless life in perfect obedience to his Father’s will. It was in exultant triumph that he declared the conflict won.

The enemy had lost.

The work of redemption was complete. (The tense of the original language means that this act of completion was done once and for all time and its results would abide continuously.)

The work was finished.

The victory was obtained.

And we are the beneficiary of that victory.

R.S.P.

John 19:30

Let the redeemed of the Lord say so.

May the redeeming blood of our Lord Jesus Christ shines in victory in us!

What was the eye of the needle?

In the United States, some homes have a small opening in the bottom of their back doors with a swinging cover, to allow house pets easy access and exit. In Israel today, some homes have a similar door within a door but much larger than those in the United States. They take up the lower half of the door. Tour guides like to point them out as the “eye of the needle” that Jesus referred to.

If so, the hyperbole is still preserved as a device which Jesus effectively used to drive home his point, but a fresh application is revealed. In such a large eye of the needle, it is still possible for a camel to go through but it would first have to be divested of any load on its back, and it must get down on its knees. Even then, it would be with extreme difficulty to have it pass through this opening.

R.S.P.

A blessed weekend to all!

Ang Puso Ko

Heart

Kahapon ay nagtungo ako sa Cardiac EchoLab bilang tulong sa isang kaibigan. Nangailangan kasi siya ng taong pageeksperimentuhan may puso para sa kanyang actual test kinabukasan. Pagkatapos ng aking trabaho ay diretso na ako sa Outpatient Building kung saan matatagpuan ang Cardiac EchoLab.

Ang sabi naman ni Kaibigang Wiki ay ito:

An echocardiogram, often referred to in the medical community as a cardiac ECHO or simply an ECHO, is a sonogram of the heart (it is not abbreviated as ECG, which in medicine usually refers to an electrocardiogram). Also known as a cardiac ultrasound, it uses standard ultrasound techniques to image two-dimensional slices of the heart.

Sa madaling sabi ay pinaghubad ako ng pantaas na damit, inihiga ng patagilid at sinimulan ng galugarin ang aking dibdib. Tatlong naggagandahang mga EchoTech ang nagtulong-tulong sa akin. Sa tulong ng gel at probe ay unti-unti nilang pinag-aralan ang aking puso. Ang galing ng 2D Cardiac Echo, kahit ngawit na ako sa pagkakatagilid ay pilit kong sinilip ang hitsura ng aking puso. Konting apply ng gel at makailang taas-baba sa probe ay naging matagumpay naman ang kanilang pag-eeksperimentoaaral sa halos isang oras nilang paggalugad.

Tinanong ko sila kung kumusta naman ang aking puso. Sabi naman nila ay pasalamat daw ako at may puso pa ako  malusog ang aking puso.

Sa aking paglabas ng kwarto at hospital ay nagpasalamat ako sa Diyos na malusog ang aking puso. Mahirap na kasing magkasakit sa puso. Ang aking ama at nakababatang kapatid ay sakit sa puso (atake) ang kanilang ikinamatay.

Napakahalaga ng puso hindi lamang sa biological function nito sa katawan kungdi ito din ang daan kung paano tayo nakikipag-usap sa Diyos. Naalala ko si King David na ang turing ng Diyos sa kanya ay “After God’s Own Heart.” Sumagi din sa isip ko ang “My Heart Will Go On” ng Titanic (at sakto pinanood namin kagabi). Ang “One Love” ng bandang Blue. At higit sa lahat ang “Heart of Worship” na si Hesu Kristo.

The heart is so complex that its mechanism able to sustain life while man is so stubborn that the Heart of Worship is able to give love without boundaries, yet, sometimes, life is wasted.

For me, if there is one word to describe God’s love, that is, STUBBORN. His love for you and me is stubborn. We refuse, hate, swear and ignore Him; He just simply loves us back. How stubborn!

Sa lahat ng sipi sa Banal na Aklat ito ang pinakagusto ko:

Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life. — Proverbs 4:23

Ang totoo nito may mga bagay parin akong isinusuko sa Panginoon at pinapabago. Ninais ko din sanang ang imahe sa ibaba ang makita ng tatlong EchoTech kahapon.

J Represents the Heart of Worship

Hinihiling ko sa Diyos sa araw-araw ay makita nawa nila sa akin ang kanyang puso at pag-ibig. I need that I and many I’s in my life(ako lagi nalang ako) to be changed by God into His likeness, no selfishness; then, everything will follow.

P.S. Kung sino man po ang nais magbigay sa akin ng code ng song na “Heart of Worship” by Matt Redman or W. Smith ay ikakagalak ko pong tunay. Paki-email lamang po sa akin. Be blessed to all!
