"...Jesus ...said, "Everything is done!" He bowed his head and died." (John 19:30, CEV)

It is finished!
Religion says, "Do, do and do until you die, you will go to heaven." Jesus said, "You cannot DO anything to secure heavenly salvation apart from me (John15:5). Everthing is DONE for your salvation, healing, peace, prosperity...., believe it and live for eternity." What a stark constrasting picture Jesus projects in opposition to all the religions of this world.
Jesus is the only person who has come in to this world not to establish another religion, but to restore the lost relationship of humans with God through sacrificing His own life as a ransom price paid to God for all our inadequencies, sin nature and failures to be covered. As a result of what Jesus has acheived for us, now we are the inheritor of all the blessings that belong to God. O what a mercy!
"The general religion of mankind is DO, but the religion of a true Christian is DONE." - Charles Spurgeon
