I want to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone involved with last weekend’s Christmas Musical. To the leadership team, cast and crew, those who invited family and friends, and everyone who prayed, it was a tremendous Kingdom success! What a powerful Christmas presentation that got our hearts ready for Advent, the coming of Christ to our world.
But why did Jesus come to earth? He was a great teacher. He lived a perfect life. He did amazing miracles. But that’s not why he came. He came to be our savior. Each of the four Gospels give a purpose verse for Jesus’ life.
“And she will have a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.”
“For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
“For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost.”
(Right before the cross Jesus says,) “Now my soul is deeply troubled. Should I pray, ‘Father, save me from this hour’? But this is the very reason I came!”
As we celebrate Christmas, remember why Jesus came to this earth. Let him forgive your sins. Let him into your heart. Let him be king. Let him be your savior this Christmas.
