Why God Came to Earth: The Truth about Christ
The ‘god of this world’ has convinced humanity that truth can be contradictory (Gen. 3:4; Jn. 8:44; R.C Sproul).
THE WORK OF CHRIST
To do God’s will (Jn. 6:37-40)
To make it possible for people to have their lives CHANGED.
1. To seek and to save what was lost (Lk. 19:10)—CHANGED HEARTS
From spiritually dead (Eph.2:1) --> burning passion (Lk. 24:32; 2 Cor. 5:17)
Evidence of salvation—
A Radical Worldview Change!
2. To redeem us from the curse of the law (Gal. 3:13) – CHANGED LIFESTYLE
From slaves to sin (Rom. 6:6) --> freed from sin (Rom. 6:7; 1 Jn. 3:2-10)
By hanging on “the tree”, Jesus took our curse and became our scapegoat so we could be blessed and welcome to stay in the city of God.
Only Christians are FREE!!
3. To destroy the works of the devil (1 Jn. 3:8; Heb. 2:14-15) – CHANGED DESTINY
From the fear of death and sentence to Hell (Jn. 5:29; Matt 25:46) --> life everlasting (Jn. 3:16; 5:24; 10:10,28)
Once the wages of sin (death) had been paid, those in Christ Jesus our Lord receive the gift of God (eternal life) [Rom. 6:23]. Death came by sin (Rom. 5:12); sins forgiven renders death powerless (1 Cor. 15:56-57).
Death can no longer be the destiny of the Christian!
Is Christ at work in your life?
