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.”
Matthew 1:21

“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.”
Mark 10:45

“For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost.”
Luke 19:10

(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!”
John 12:27

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.
