Timeless truths from John 19:30.
“It is finished.” Jesus finished the work of salvation on the cross. Nothing can be added to it. We are saved by trusting in the work of Jesus on the cross. We can add nothing to that at any time. Salvation is a result of our faith in Jesus who paid for our sin in full on the cross. When we seek to add to the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross, we turn salvation into the work of Jesus plus our work. We must simply believe in the Lord Jesus to be saved. But we must believe in the Jesus of the Bible. Not one after our own image.
“When Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished! ” Then bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.” John 19:30 HCSB
