Why Did Jesus Come?

Thanksgiving is now past for 2023 and maybe you had some visitors for this precious holiday. I was so thankful to have all our sons and their families come to enjoy a wonderful time together at our home. A question one may ask is, “Why did they all come?” In reflecting upon my family members, I would say, “to see each other, to enjoy fellowship, to get caught up, to gather around a meal, to experience joy and laughter, and to support and encourage one another. I am sure there are additional things they would say.

Now that Christmas is upon us, have you stopped long enough to reflect upon why did Jesus come? Oh no doubt someone can quickly answer without any emotional tie to what they are saying. Then I know there are some of you who, upon reflecting on why He came, cannot restrain the emotions that erupt from a heart of gratitude.

Just as with our family gathering, there are several reasons why Jesus came. Here are some:

JESUS CAME TO:

Do His Father’s Will:

Jesus willingly came to fulfill His Father’s will. We see a summary of this in Luke 4:18-19 which states:

The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me because He has anointed Me:

 to proclaim Good News to the poor,
 to heal the brokenhearted,
 to proclaim liberty to the captives,
 to recover sight to the blind,
 to set at liberty those that are oppressed, and
 to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.

Reveal God to us:

If Jesus did not come to the earth to reveal God to us, we would be left to our own imaginations as to whom God truly is. Jesus is the exact replica of God, because He is truly God Himself. To know the Father is to know the Son He sent.

Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?” (John 14:9)

Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. (Colossian 1:15)

Fulfill Prophecy:

Jesus fulfilled over three hundred prophecies related to the Messiah.

Then Jesus took them through the writings of Moses and all the prophets, explaining from all the Scriptures the things concerning himself. (Luke 24:27)

Destroy Satan and Death:

Satan and death are defeated and must submit to our Sovereign Lord and Savior.

The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work. (1 John 3:8)

For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death. (I Cor 15:25-26)

Restore Us to God:

If you have no idea as to why you need to be restored to God, please click here for more details. There is one crucial decision that each one of us must make, and that is to be restored to God and know His love. To delay this decision is to place oneself under God’s wrath and judgment. Do not let that be you.

For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God’s one and only Son. (John 3:16-18)

So, what is the answer to the question, “Why did Jesus come?” The simple answer is YOU. You are why He came. He demonstrated His love for you by paying your sin penalty through His death, burial, resurrection. After His ascension into Heaven, He now lives to intercede in every area of your life. When you receive Him as your Savior and Lord, He will guide, provide, protect, deliver, comfort, strengthen, and be with you no matter what you face.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours!
