Why Did He Come?

Matthew 1:18-25


Why did Jesus come?

-Just to be a good man?

-Just to be a good teacher?

-Just to set us an example?

I. He came because there was a great need.

-The need was someone to save us from our sin.

-Matthew 1:21

1 John 3:5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.

-There was a great need because of our sin.

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Romans 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

Romans 6:23 The wages of sin is death…

-We were condemned by our own sin.

-Jesus came to take away our sin so we could have

eternal life.

II. There was a great plan.

-Romans 5:8 But God commended His love toward us

in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

-The plan began with God’s great love toward us.

Jeremiah 31:3 The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

1 John 4:9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

1 John 4:10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the

propitiation for our sins.

-God’s plan includes you.

--You have a great need

--Jesus died for you!

-His plan

--Jesus would live a perfect life

--Then die on a cross or pay for your sin.

-Your part is to simple believe Him

III. There was (and is) a great place.

John 14:1-6

Revelation 20:1-7 (overcome)

Revelation 21:1-5

-Revelation 21:7

This place is for those who overcome

-1 John 5:4-5

-Those who overcome are born again
