Why Jesus Came

My purpose is to give life in all its fullness (John 10:10, NLT)

Jesus didn’t live on earth just to prove He is God. He came to give you eternal life, to offer you forgiveness and set you free from sin and guilt, to give you a full and meaningful life here on earth.


Sweet Forgiveness

His unfailing love toward those who fear him is as great as the height of the heavens above the earth. He has removed our rebellious acts as far away from us as the east is from the west (Psalm 103:11-12, NLT)

Do you sometimes find it difficult to believe that you have total forgiveness for your sins in Jesus Christ? Intellectually you believe it, but how about deep within your heart?


Fear of Failure

God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline (2 Timothy 1:7, NLT)

Some Christians are so afraid of failure that they become reserved, overly cautions, and uninvolved in life. They follow a policy of guarded living, holding back time, talents, and treasure from God’s service. Their motto is: To keep from failing — don’t try! We must not be this way.

If you forgive those who sin against you, your heavenly Father will forgive you. But if you refuse to forgive others, your Father will not forgive your sins (Matthew 6:14-15, NLT)

Joseph was truly a great and godly man, who suffered tremendously, was misunderstood, but was faithful to God. The late Dr. J. Vernon McGee counted numerous ways in which the details of Joseph’s life were a foreshadow and a symbol of the life of Christ.


Communist Plot Backfires!

You yourself must be an example to them by doing good deeds of every kind (Titus 2:7, NLT)

Whether we realize it or not, our example leaves an impression on others. Let us ask God to help us make it one of love, faith, and purity of life.
