It is easy to leave something not quite done. Finishing can be hard work. When God finished creation He said it was very good. Jesus could have avoided the cross, but He didn’t because His work would have been incomplete. Before He died on the cross Jesus said, “It is finished.” His job was done. The price for sins was paid in full. We call the day Jesus died Good Friday because His death is good news for us. God finished creation on a Friday. Jesus finished the work of recreation and restoration on Friday. Thank God for Friday.
