Resolutions seem designed to show weakness. This poem explains Jesus kept his resolution to free us from failure as he cried “It is finished!”

Spoken word poem remembering God's great resolution: 'It is finished'

At New Years we make new promises, goals and resolutions, but time and again we fail to fulfil our self-help lists. This spoken word poem is a great reminder of the one who's New Year's resolution rid the world of sin and gave us absolution. Unlike us, Jesus can check 10 out of 10; he passed day one, day two, day three. God's Son brought an end to death and worldly strife, to bring us eternal life. How amazing this New Year that we can find rest remembering God’s resolution of grace and salvation. When He made his resolution, He said “It is finished”.

Possible Discussion Questions

  • Why do we find it so hard to keep resolutions and promises we make?
  • Why are Jesus' words spoken on the cross "It is Finished" such great news?
