Wonder of Advent #2
Read: John 6:35-40
I have come down from heaven to do the will of God who sent me, not to do my own will.
WHY DID JESUS COME TO EARTH? He gives several purpose statements in the Gospels, and we will explore some of them this week in preparation for Advent. In John 6, Jesus said he came to do the will of the Father—and that the will of the Father was to call people to faith and to raise them up at the last day. In other words, this was a divine rescue mission. The ministry of Jesus consistently demonstrated his desire to save. Even his birth stories reflect God’s purpose—in reaching shepherds, magi from the East, people longing to see the Messiah—and give us clues as to the nature of his mission.
What did Jesus come to save you from? What did he come to save you for?
