WHY?

 

Why did Jesus come?

WHY did Jesus come to earth as a baby?

Christmas means that:

Christ DESCENDED so we could ASCEND
[John 6:38;  14:3]

Christ became POOR so we could become RICH
[2 Cor 8:9. James 2:5]

Christ was BORN so we could be BORN AGAIN
[John 1:14;  3:2,7]

Christ became a SERVANT so we could become SONS and HEIRS
[Gal 4:4-7]

Christ was BOUND that we might go FREE
[Matt 27:2;  John 8:32-36]

Christ was MADE SIN that we might be made RIGHTEOUS
[2 Cor 5:21]

Christ DIED so we might LIVE
[John 5:24-25]

Christ CAME DOWN so that we might be CAUGHT UP
[1 Thess 4:16-17]

 

Jesus is coming again

About meetingintheclouds

I am Cloudwatcher, a 76 year old Christian lady, happily married to a wonderful man for over 50 years. We have five wonderful sons, all with at least one University degree and in top positions in their chosen fields. One son is still single but four have found perfect wives and they have given us five lovely grandchildren. I was born in England and while I'm proud of my English heritage, I am doubly proud to be a true-blue, fair-dinkum Aussie. My husband and I are committed Christians whose first priority is to love and serve our risen Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ. My life story will tell of my journey from abuse to peace. I suffered 22 years of abuse, being constantly told I was totally evil and an ugly freak: no one would ever want me, so I might as well do the world a favour and kill myself.

    Oh my soul! I love this so much! It reminds me of one of my favorite songs.

    His Life for Mine

    VERSE 1:
    HIS HEART WAS BROKEN; MINE WAS MENDED.
    HE BECAME SIN; NOW I AM CLEAN.
    THE CROSS HE CARRIED BORE MY BURDEN.
    THE NAILS THAT HELD HIM SET ME FREE.

    CHORUS:
    HIS LIFE FOR MINE,
    HIS LIFE FOR MINE,
    HOW COULD IT EVER BE
    THAT HE WOULD DIE,
    GOD’S SON WOULD DIE
    TO SAVE A WRETCH LIKE ME?
    WHAT LOVE DIVINE!
    HE GAVE HIS LIFE FOR MINE.

    VERSE 2:
    HIS SCARS OF SUFF’RING BROUGHT ME HEALING.
    HE SPILLED HIS BLOOD TO FILL MY SOUL.
    HIS CROWN OF THORNS MADE ME ROYALTY.
    HIS SORROW GAVE ME JOY UNTOLD.

    BRIDGE:
    HE WAS DESPISED AND REJECTED,
    STRIPPED OF HIS GARMENT, AND OPPRESSED.
    I AM LOVED AND ACCEPTED,
    AND I WEAR A ROBE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS.

    (CHORUS AGAIN)

    • Thank you for sharing the words of that song. I don’t know it but I’m copying the words to put with my collection of poems.
      Truly we serve an amazing God whose love is beyond comprehension yet undeniable.
