“It is finished.”
What could this mean?
One thing is that God came in the flesh and perfectly fulfilled the law, especially through his temptation, his suffering on the cross. He perfectly did what our heart requires of us. The one who completed his work in perfectly fulfilling the law extends full and free forgiveness from the law in every one of our hearts. The one we thought condemns us is the one who laid down his life to free us from our self-condemnation. But if we don’t accept this simple faith, then we are left with the law that will destroy us.
