John: It Is Finished

John 19:28-30

We recently put out an Easter Devotional Guide for families, and one of the recommended activities is for parents to take their children on a cemetery scavenger hunt. Some may find that to be a bit strange or even harmful for children, to expose them to the concept of death. But the Christian gospel is a message about the death of Christ and His defeat of death, so that we may be prepared for death ourselves. And if we shy away from the subject, whether with our children or within our own minds as adults, we strip the gospel of its full power and minimize the significance of what Jesus has accomplished for us. Join us in John 19:28-30, as we read John’s account of the moment in which Jesus died, seeing what He meant when He said, “It is finished!”
