It Is Finished

February 5, 2010

And then there are those moments when our past episodes of missing the mark seem to be tossed in our face: and we are given a choice to respond in one way or another.

My default is to agree with the unspoken conclusion that I will never rise above my failures; that they are the final definers of my being.

Then, another thought shatters the greedy dark: IT IS FINISHED. Words more profound were never spoken about the very nature of our struggle with sin and its ugly consequences. Sin has been crucified. MY sin has been crucified. I can choose to believe that and stand on its truth, stretching like a safe walkway through the otherwise perilous ground of regret and shame. It certainly beats the alternative.
