I glorified you on earth, having accomplished the work that you gave me to do.

In the short span of Jesus’ life, He was focused on accomplishing the will of the Father. Over and over again He speaks of needing to fulfill the scriptures.

Mt. 26:56 But all this has taken place that the Scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled.

Mark 14:49 Day after day I was with you in the temple teaching, and you did not seize me. But let the Scriptures be fulfilled.

Luke 4:21 And he began to say to them, “Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.”

Luke 22:37 For I tell you that this Scripture must be fulfilled in me: ‘And he was numbered with the transgressors.’ For what is written about me has its fulfillment.

John 13:18 I am not speaking of all of you; I know whom I have chosen. But the Scripture will be fulfilled, ‘He who ate my bread has lifted his heel against me.

John 19:24 This was to fulfill the Scripture which says, “They divided my garments among them, and for my clothing they cast lots.” So, the soldiers did these things,

John 19:28 After this, Jesus, knowing that all was now finished, said (to fulfill the Scripture), “I thirst.”

The fulfillment of Scripture would be the pursuit of the will of the Father. Jesus accomplished what the Father sent Him to do. A part of that was to fulfill Scriptures written about Him centuries before He was born. Yet he made choices that allowed the fulfillment of the Scriptures. He could not leave a single one undone and still fulfill His mission and purpose.

“When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, ‘It is finished’, and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.” John 19:30

He completed His task. He fulfilled the Scripture. He followed the will of the Father. May we show similar focus, dedication and commitment.
