Standing Strong In A Finished Work
The finished work of Christis one of the greatest revelations I have ever received.. For many years, I lived my Christian life striving to earn the goodness of God through my own works thinking that my works made me holy and gave me favor with God. I would read the scripture where it says 'be ye holy for I am holy' and I believed that it meant, I was not like God and I had to work to become holy by doing religious acts. The thing was, no matter how hard I tried, there would be some area in my life that I would fall short in. Disappointed, confused, and feeling guilty again because I had disappointed God, I would start all over again trying to work even harder to do good because I wanted to stay saved and go to Heaven.
One day during my time of study and meditation in the Word, I came across the scripture where Jesus said while on the cross “It is finished”. It was then that the Holy Spirit began to speak to me asking me “Do you know what this means” I then began to give him my religious understanding of what I believed this statement meant. From that moment on the Spirit began to take me through the Word and lead me to listen to different teachers in the body of Christ concerning the finished work of Christ. I began to understand that faith was not something in the distant future but faith declares what Christ has already done. Words like already given, has blessed, and were healed, were now jumping out of the scriptures giving me a new perspective of faith.
I then began to understand the Grace of God and how it is not by works but faith in what Jesus has already done that has placed me in right standing and favor with God. Because of God's love, he has given the believer the gift of salvation by just believing on his son Jesus. Everything concerning me that pertains to life and Godliness is already done in Christ. I stand strong in finished work!!!
