A meditation for Saturday: on unfinished responsiveness to finished work . . .
It is finished. It is complete—
The work of Jesus, Lord of history.
He gave in once and for all—
The Lord on Skull Hill.
Now His Spirit calls,
And I thank You for Your grace.
I would have been nothing without You in my place!
My Jesus waits for me
With the Father in heaven—God of all that breathes.
Great is Your love, eclipsing my sin.
Your hand invites me,
And I enter in.
There’s no greater love than this,
And I in return lavish my love with a kiss.¹
It is finished. This I believe.
Regeneration I would receive. . . .

¹ The reference is to Luke 7:37-50—and particularly to the apparently spontaneous gesture of the woman. The notion of a kiss as a worship gesture is seriously limited, but the woman of Luke 7 and the etymology of προσκυνέω | proskuneo (although not used in Luke 7) suggest that it is not entirely inappropriate to make the connection.
