The Reason Jesus Came

Jesus didn't come to change the world, but to change sinners that are in the world. Around this time of year there are many bible movies on TV. It seems like for the most part the message is always Jesus came to change the world. They say things like he taught us how to love one another and keep the golden rule, etc., and to be a good example and teacher. But in all actuality, this is not really true. Jesus came to save sinners, not to be a good teacher and example, even though he was, being that he was the perfect sinless Lamb of God. His main purpose, though, in coming to earth was to save sinners who would trust him in their heart for forgiveness of their sins.

1 Timothy 1:15: This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief

Many false religions claim to follow the teachings of Jesus, but without being born again of the spirit, there is no way possible anyone could ever follow the teachings of Jesus because our natural hearts are sinful and black. The first thing that one must do is to trust Jesus as their savior and then God imputes his righteousness to them.

Romans 4:5-7: But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. 6: Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works, 7: Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.

Matthew 1:21: And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

Luke 19:10: For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.

Jesus Came To Save

Jesus came not to call the righteous
but sinners to repent
When he left heaven to come to earth
that was his sole intent
It's not the people who are whole
but those sick who need a physician
Jesus came to save sinners
That's why he gave the great commission

He told us to go into the all the world
and preach the gospel to every creature
Jesus came to the world to save sinners,
not just to be a good teacher
He died on the cross for all the sins of the world
that those who would on him believe
and trust his shed blood for remission of sin
would his free gift of salvation receive

To receive this wonderful gift of eternal life,
you only need to look to Jesus and live
He has already paid your sin debt
and is ready and willing to forgive
Jesus loves you so much
that he suffered and bled and died
If you've never asked him to be your savior,
then today is the day to decide

Jesus died, was buried, and rose again the third day
to save you from going to hell
That is the gospel story
the greatest story ever to tell
You only need to trust Jesus with your heart
and ask him to be your savior
He'll forgive you of all your sin and write your name in heaven
and give you abundant life and so much more

John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abideth on him.
