Tuesday Tunes | It Is Finished

Posted: April 10, 2012 by Rich Landosky in Tuesday Tunes

The thoughts of Christ’s sacrifice on the cross and the power of His resurrection continue to run through my mind as we are only a few days removed from Easter Sunday.  Added to that is the fact that I recently introduced Dean to some 80s Christian music like Steve Taylor, DC Talk and Petra, so he’s been overheard singing the song “It Is Finished” by Petra the last few days as he walks around the house.  That song was always one of my favorite songs by Petra because of the picture it so vividly painted of our Savior’s sacrifice for us.

I found a video put to the song on YouTube. The video footage used is from the movie The Passion of Christ, so it is pretty graphic in places. I debated whether or not to put that video on here.  But I keep coming back to the reality that even as horrific the picture portrayed of the crucifixion is in that movie, it still pales in comparison to what it really would have been like.  Isaiah 52:14 tells us that the suffering and crucified Savior would be brutally beaten.  “Just as there were many who were appalled at him— his appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any man and his form marred beyond human likeness— . . . ”

So, hear and head the warning.  If the graphic nature of the video is too much, just listen to the song and feel the impact of the lyrics as they portray what deep, deep love our Savior had for us.  If you can stomach the video, hear and feel and see a portrayal of the love He has for me and you . . . and those you know who don’t yet know Christ.  Remember as you watch this and what was done for you, that time is short and Hell is hot. Don’t keep the message of Good Friday and Easter to yourself.
