Satisfied in Full

by Chip Brogden

April 23

“When Jesus had received
the sour wine, He said, ‘It is finished!’ And bowing His head,
He gave up His spirit.”
JOHN 19:30

The phrase “it is finished” here is a single word in the Greek: teleō. It means, “paid in full,” which certainly confirms that Christ has paid the debt of our sins in full. But teleō also means the process is completed; the work is fulfilled; in other words, “I have accomplished the purpose for which I came.” God is wholly and completely satisfied forever by the one sacrifice of Christ on the Cross. May we never be satisfied with anything less.

Let us lay hold of the complete victory afforded us through Calvary! Let us endeavor to enter into the height, depth, length, width, and breadth of this Cross of Jesus Christ!
