Why Did Jesus Come?
December 30, 2020

Today’s 333 Devotional: “Why Did Jesus Come?”

Answer: To Redeem Us.

“When the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.” (Galatians 4:4-5)

We are under the law, and subject to its requirements and consequences. Jesus came in the fullness of time, born of a woman, and made under the law, to redeem all who are subject to the law.

Jesus came to be our redeemer, and the only way He could redeem us is by fulfilling the requirements of the law paying the penalty pursuant to the law.

• Jesus didn’t come to help us live moral and upright lives.
• Jesus didn’t come to bring another philosophy of life.
• Jesus didn’t come to set up a new form of government
• Jesus came to pay the ransom price required by the law for our sins, something we could ever do on our own.

The Psalmist said, “Redemption does not come so easily, for no one can ever pay enough to live forever and never see the grave.” (Psalm 49:8-9)

The Bible says the wages of sin is death, and everyone has sinned. So the cost is beyond our ability to pay.

What is the cost to ransom our souls?

Answer: Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Jesus paid the penalty. Jesus our Redeemer blots out our sins by nailing them to the cross, and so disarmed all of Satan’s schemes (Colossians 2:15).

This brings me to the last question, Why Did Jesus Do All of That?

Answer: That We Might Receive the Adoption of Sons

Jesus didn’t come to give some nice Christmas presents; rather He came to redeem us and to make us children of God, members of God’s divine family.

“For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, ‘Abba, Father.’” (Romans 8:15)
