All Done!

Some things just wouldn't make any sense.

For example, what if a wife did her husband's laundry.  She washed it.  Dried it.  Folded it.  And, put it all away.  His laundry is completely finished.  But, he decides to then start pulling it all out of his drawers and re-washing, re-drying, re-folding, re-putting away.  What a  ridiculous concept, right?

Or what about a mechanic fixing a woman's car.  It's had a complete make-over.  New parts.  Freshly detailed.  Completely finished and ready for her using.  But, she decides to begin disassembling the car and re-fixing.  It would be absolute nonsense, for sure.

But, that is what many of us want to do in the work that has already been done for us 2000 years ago.

Our Finisher announced it.  "It is finished."  The heavy work is done.  We don't need to try to do it again ourselves.  We might think we need to.  Maybe we've been told we have to.  But, that kind of understanding is foolishness and burdensome. 

Only He was able to do it.  And, He did. 

What a relief this is for us!  We don't have to try to do a work that is already FINISHED!
