Daily Devotional – Life Changing Scripture 5

By on January 1, 2021
Daily Devotional

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from John 19:28-30. “It is finished” Jesus was signaling to the world that there was no more need for sacrifices or temples. The work done by His ultimate sacrifice fulfilled the need for sacrifices and allowed for the Holy Spirit to occupy the earth yet again.

“Later, knowing that everything had now been finished, and so that Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, “I am thirsty.” 29 A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus’ lips. 30 When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.”

The cross allowed for God to encounter His creation.

While all of these life-changing scriptures have made an impact on my life personally, this one scripture has impacted generations from before Christ till His return. Jesus finished the work of God. He had satisfied the need of the Father, paving the way for both creation and the creator to approach.


Jesus has done it all, and all that we need to do is accept His salvation. Something so easy becomes complicated by sin. We as humans have inherited sin, and with our sin comes the desire to be in control. Some struggle with this more than others, but we do not want to be weak and dependent on another.

Jesus has done all that can be done to save and restore this world. It is done! We have to accept it and humble ourselves before Him to receive His salvation and leadership.

Let’s Pray

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you, Jesus, that You came and died for me and all of humanity. I humble myself before You today, releasing my grip on everything so that You may have Your way. Lead me by Your Holy Spirit today and every day!

In Jesus Name,
