finished the fight

I passed by an oncoming jogger on the bike path and noticed the message on her t-shirt:

Finish the fight.

I’m pretty sure of the cause represented in the woman’s workout wear; however, the message drew me to an entirely different focus. Worship.

I began to praise Jesus who overcame the world (John 16:33).

I celebrated the fact that God raised His Son from the dead and “seated Him far above all rule and authority, power [even power to destroy] and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come” (Ephesians 1:20-21).

I rehearsed Jesus’ words in His final moments of taking on all sin and suffering of mankind… He said,

“It is finished” (John 19:30).
