I had a brief conversation with a friend about ghosts and he felt that ghosts of the dead do hang around if there is unfinished business, or if the person died too suddenly. Putting this in a Christian context many of us would say that because there is always work to do in God’s kingdom, there is always unfinished business…and some of us are even surprised at how suddenly death knocks on the door. I’m trying to imagine Christian spirits with unfinished business who only thought they were going to rest from their earthly labors! For me, I need look no further than the example Jesus put before us as He hung on the cross. “A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus’ lips. When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit” (John 19:29-30 NIV).
