it is finished

today's readings: 2 Sam 17:1-29, John 19:23-42, Psalm 119:129-152, Proverbs 16:12-13

the end comes for two men in today's reading... Absalom's adviser gives him advice that he should have followed if he wanted to defeat David. but man makes His plans, while God orders his steps... so Absalom follows the other guy's advice, and his chief adviser goes home and hangs himself. sad, ignominious ending.

Jesus, on the other hand, defeats sin.He conquers the enemy of temptation, and then He says "It is finished" and gives up His spirit. never has a man died like that in the history of the world.

God, please order my steps to fulfill your plan, like you did with Your Son.

Very life changing readings today. Without the NT reading of today our lives would not have hope or life eternal. Thank you Jesus.
