Why Did Jesus Come to the World?

Many are confused as to the reason for Christ’s coming into this world. False religion supposes that Christ came to die for men so that they may have a profitable and happy life in this world. That Jesus wants men to be healthy happy and successful in the things of this world. But the word of God is plain and cannot be misunderstood. Jesus Christ came to save His people from their sins (Matthew 1:21). Jesus Christ came to glorify God, magnify the law by his obedience and satisfy the justice of God for the sins of his elect people (John 17:1-3; Isaiah 42:21; Hebrews 10:14).

Therefore, all that comes to pass in time is according to the divine providence of God and is for the salvation and good of His chosen people (Isaiah 46:10; Romans 8:28). Everyone that the Father chose and the Son redeemed, the Spirit of God shall call and keep (1 Peter 1:2-5). None of God’s children will be lost (John 6:39). All that happens to them in this world is for their good. All that happens toward the wicked of this world is for the good of His saints (Genesis 50:20). So then, believer in Christ, let us take courage even in the midst of our trials, in the very teeth of our tribulation, for all things are of God and all things work together for our good (2 Corinthians 5:18). Our sickness or health, in poverty’s vail or abounding in wealth – all things are of God and are purposed; and will be used of God for the glory of His name and the calling and keeping of our souls. Therefore, rejoice, you his saints, no matter your circumstances, for Jesus has accomplished all he purposed to do; for He has saved us, He is saving us, and he shall save us.
