it is very good, finished, done...

"God saw all that He had made, and it was very good." Genesis 1:31


It was very good...the words that God uttered when humanity came to life. It was what He had thought of, it is what wisdom had a front row seat to, it was what He wanted...us. But sin entered and broke every part of our humanity down to a place that beckoned a Savior to come and redeem us.


In a lowly manger, a Savior was born...King Jesus. It was God's gift to us, to be with us. It was our Savior...coming in all humility...coming to give us life. The Maker making Himself known. Emmanuel. And to give us life, He had to lose His.


"...He said, "It is finished!" Then bowing His head, He gave up His spirit." John 19:30

On the cross, bearing our sin from so long ago in the garden to the very moment when this world will be made new...He took it all. To fulfill God's plan. To redeem our lives. To give us hope.


"And He said to me, "It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End." Revelation 21:6


From the moment humanity was created to the new heaven and new earth that will come, we are forever held by His hands, the Savior of our souls, the One who deserves all of our praise...the One who will say "It is done!" and all of heaven and earth will sing forever. Come Lord Jesus Come...


This is Christmas. This is the hope we have in the creator of humanity, who came to be with us in a manger, who came to die for us, who will one day return for us and make everything new. He is the beginning and He is the end. This is our forever hope.
