Finding lasting victory over sin

It is FinishedDavid Wilkerson is best known for his early ministry to drug addicts and gang members in New York City.  His story is told in The Cross and the Switchblade which was made into a movie in 1970.  For many years, Wilkerson struggled with the New Covenant and how to put that into practice having grown up with legalism and works theology.

“In my later years, I have concluded that laying hold of the New Covenant is the only way to break free from the power and dominion of sin” writes Wilkerson in his introduction to “It is Finished”.  It’s not about hard work to make up for the bad things you’ve done.  It’s about the redeeming power of the New Covenant.

“It is Finished” is composed of messages Wilkerson preached at Times Square Church in New York City.  Wilkerson has filled his book with basic covenant truths with deep explanations in order for you to apply God’s truth to your life.  If you have ever struggled with sin and grieved over them and sought freedom from them, Wilkerson’s powerful teachings will show you how to stop the cycle of sinning and confessing.

Wilkerson helped me understand the New Covenant concept better than any other pastor or teacher ever has because he struggled with this himself and diligently sought the truth.  Thank goodness he was able to share this knowledge with us through the generosity of his estate.  It is a book you will devour as you read.  I am grateful this book was written and that I was able to receive this book I so desperately needed at this time in my life.
