Jesus came to complete every task God, His Father, had laid out for Him. Jesus, earlier (John 5:38) had said “These very tasks, as I go about completing them, confirm that the Father, in fact, sent me.” 

And so … It is done. It is complete. There is nothing else to do except be raised from the dead, by the power of God and ascend to Heaven. Jesus has now ushered in a new agreement (aka covenant or testament). His blood poured out for us complete that transaction. The blood of Jesus has cleaned me up from all sin. It is done. It is complete.

Has Jesus finished everything He came to do?

John 19:30 - It is complete

John 19:30 – It is complete

Jesus had been thirsty. They gave him some sour wine.

Jesus knew everything God had sent him here to accomplish was done. This was the next to last thing he said from the cross.

Imagine knowing that you had finished it all. Nothing left undone. Every prophecy fulfilled.

All the suffering was over. Every single goal, plan and detail completed with never missing a thing. Only the Son of God could do this.

And Jesus, our Master and the Messiah did it.

Everything complete.

Well done Master Jesus.

Well done our Savior.

Well done our Redeemer.

The Scripture

A jar full of sour wine was sitting there; so they fixed a sponge full of sour wine on a hyssop branch and held it up to his mouth.

When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished.” Then bowing his head, he gave up his spirit. | John 19:29-30 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

Why is Jesus thirsty?

Jesus is ThirstyHanging from the cross. He will die for us. The agony is unbearable. He didn’t say a lot. It was too painful. In His suffering, He has an unquenchable thirst.

He cries out in pain: “I am thirsty!”

Everything is almost done. God’s goal will be complete soon. A few last things to do.

It is not the first time he has expressed he is thirsty. He did it on his visit to Samaria.

An outcast woman helped that day. Jesus said to her, “Would you give me a drink of water?”  They had a long conversation. It wasn’t as much about the need for water as it was a chance to bring her to God. 

Jesus gives opportunities to help. Sometimes it is just with something simple like helping to quench thirst.

Do we hear Jesus? Will we answer? Will we help?

Jesus is on a mission. He knows what is ahead.

And yet, he is thirsty. They give him some wine.

Jesus is talking. He is thirsty.

Will we help?

Jesus, seeing that everything had been completed so that the Scripture record might also be complete, then said, “I’m thirsty.”

A jug of sour wine was standing by. Someone put a sponge soaked with the wine on a javelin and lifted it to his mouth. After he took the wine, Jesus said, “It’s done . . . complete.” Bowing his head, he offered up his spirit. | John 19:28-30

What is Jesus concerned about as he is facing a slow and cruel death for us?

Mary at the crossJesus’ mother, his aunt, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene stood at the foot of the cross. They witness the cruel death of our Master Jesus. Imagine the sorrow in their hearts and souls. 

Jesus saw his mother and the disciple he loved standing near her.

What is Jesus concerned about as he is facing a slow and cruel death for us? It is for his mother.

Jesus leads the way showing us it is not about us. It is about others. It is about family. He makes sure we are taken care of. No one is left behind. 

While the soldiers were looking after themselves, Jesus’ mother, his aunt, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene stood at the foot of the cross. Jesus saw his mother and the disciple he loved standing near her. He said to his mother, “Woman, here is your son.” Then to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” From that moment the disciple accepted her as his own mother. | John 19:26-27 The Message (MSG)
