Why Jesus?


Why did Jesus come to earth? Have you thought about this?

Why did God send His only Son to be born in poverty, live a life of humility, and die so tragically?

What’s the point?

Don’t we have ten commandments telling us how to live? Isn’t that enough?

Do not steal, do not lie, do not kill, do not commit adultery. Many people will agree that these are the things we should avoid, and many of us do.

So what is the meaning of Jesus’ coming to earth?

He did not come to earth just to teach us how to live. If this were the only reason for His coming, it would be pointless and unnecessary.

No, there was a more important goal.

The Law is the Ten Commandments and most of the first five books of the Bible gave the Israelites instructions on how to live and what sacrifices to offer at the altar because God wanted a relationship with humanity. At the same time, His absolute holiness did not allow this when they knowingly or unknowingly violated His commandments.

These sacrifices served as a means of covering up their sins. Almost like buying a parking ticket. The payment was sufficient to cover the debt, but the record of the violation remained in your file.

It was these records of violations in the personal affairs of mankind that were the main reason!

But we understand this. Is not it so? We do something wrong and we are overcome by feelings of guilt from which we cannot escape. It haunts us day and night, no matter how many times we have asked for forgiveness.

You see, God can have some relationship with a person, despite his violations in his personal business, but there can be no talk of heaven.

This is the problem!

He had to come up with a plan to completely remove the violation records from our personal files so that our personal file looked like there had never been a violation. There was only one way this could happen. Someone perfect had to become a victim.

Therefore Jesus comes.

At that moment, when He hung on the cross, He literally bore the burden of the guilt of every person who has ever lived or will live until the end of time.

If you think about this truth, about the guilt that we feel for our own sins, then this weight should have been crushing! He literally became a murderer, a thief, an adulterer, a liar – everyone at that moment!

If it were enough to simply keep the Ten Commandments as much as possible, to be a good person and help our neighbors, Jesus’ sacrifice would be meaningless. But being good is not enough. It will never be enough. And we can’t be good enough to balance the scales. Moreover, God is not trying to balance the scales.

He strives for 100% good and 0% evil.

This is the big problem!

We cannot meet this standard! God needed a way to overcome our sin. He needed a way to completely eliminate it so that the standard could be met.

This is the reason for the coming of Jesus. He was not just a cute baby in a manger – He was much more. He was not just a great teacher or prophet, He was not just a man tortured on the cross. Oh no! It’s much bigger! He is the eternal sacrifice for sin! But the story goes beyond that.

It would be a tragic end if Jesus remained in the grave. He literally went down to hell and fought Satan … and won. He snatched all authority from him and freed us from the main consequence of our sin – from eternal death.

It is because of Jesus that we know the beautiful word: justification.

Justification is As If We Never Sinned.

Disclaimer. We no longer need to bear the guilt of our sin. We no longer need to constantly ask God to forgive us. He did it 2,000 years ago.

Why Jesus?

That’s why!

Do you want to be freed from sin? Do you want to live free from the weight of sin? Take a moment and pray this prayer:

Dear Jesus, I know that I am a sinner. I know that I have violated Your Law and Your standards. I want to live in relationship with You and be with You in heaven forever. Please forgive me and cleanse me from my sins. Please remove my guilt and clear my record. Be the God of my life.

Amen.

Here are the next steps:

* Start reading the Bible.

* Pray. Prayer is just talking to God. Talk to Him and give Him time to talk to you.

* Find a church. Become a part of your local church and find other Christians to help you grow in your new relationship with Jesus.
