It is Finished

April 2, 2023 Preacher: Trent Henderson Series: Gospel of John

Topic: Easter Scripture: John 19:1–27

John 19:1-14

Payment for Sin

  • Cost of our betrayal
  • Debt of our disobedience
  • Deficit of our missing the mark

Jesus is the Passover Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. (John 1:29)

John 19:15-16


  • Legal standing before God is changed
  • We cannot help Him carry it
  • We do not have to carry it
  • We do not have to live with it

Prior guilt becomes a point of rejoicing.

Colossians 2:13-14

John 19:17-18

Reign of Pain

  • Because of sin's curse, the world is broken in all its aspects
  • Jesus endured the pain to undo the curse

John 19:19-22

Separation from God

  • The nations are invited into His Kingdom and benevolent rule
  • Those who look on the Son are drawn to the Father

John 6:37-40

John 19:23-24


  • Fear of disconnection
  • Sin makes us hide, seeking shelter and covering
    • Controlling, perfecting, numbing, blaming
    • At its core, it's the feeling of being unworthy of love or belonging


Questions about God's Love

  • When it doesn't go right, does God still love me?
  • If you come to the cross, you will not leave unloved
    • Not distant from our "real lives"
    • Bigger than what we call life

Romans 5:8
