Cape Town has a number of unfinished bridges and freeways. It’s the weirdest thing. All that effort and resources wasted and for what? My out-of-town friends would often dis me about it.
Imagine if Jesus said “Not my will but your will be done” but didn’t follow through with it. Imagine if he said to Pilate. “This is too hard, I’d rather be on holiday” and split. Imagine if the rescuing bridge (Jesus dying on the cross and resurrecting on the 3rd day) that reunited us with God the Father remained unfinished? Thank God for Jesus’ words “It Is Finished!”
