Five Reasons that Jesus Came

I John 3:5

This is the time of year when we are reminded that because of the love that God had for us, He sent His only begotten Son, Jesus into this world. We know that He did, we know the story of the first coming of Christ and the events that surrounded that special birth. Today, I want us to think about why He came.

I. He Came to be Our Sin-Bearer.

II. He Came to Destroy the Works of the Devil.

III. He Came to Give Us Eternal Life.

IV. He Came to Be the Savior of the World.

We know that Jesus came, and we have looked at the Scriptures to see why he came. The question is have we received Him? Have we said yes to Jesus, and put our faith and trust in Him? Why not trust Him today and find eternal life? If you are saved today, why not take time to thank God for His marvelous gift to us. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16)
