In Matt 18:11, we have the statement that the Son of Man has come to save that which was lost. Here in lies the purpose for Jesus Christ coming. Jesus came to save the lost. Mankind could not save ourselves so we needed someone to save us. Sin is both a man made problem and an eternal problem so we needed someone who was both man and eternal. Jesus Christ as we talked about yesterday was the perfect union of God and man. He was God incarnate. God with a face. Jesus solved the problem of sin. He was both God and man. He was both man and eternal. When Jesus came His mission according this verse was to seek and save the lost. Jesus came so that mankind could have a relationship with God. Jesus was God’s idea. Since the fall we have been trying to recapture our relationship with God. The means and method that we have been trying to do this is through good works. The thinking of all major religions is that if you follow their religious rules and regulations you will get to heaven. All major religions are about behavioral truth. Follow this behavior and you will get to heaven. Christianity is different because Jesus is God’s answer to the separation problem caused by sin. Jesus knew we could not save ourselves so He came to die on the cross and become our sacrifice and substitute for sin. Jesus died in our place. He took upon Himself on the cross our sins. He came to seek and save those who were lost. That was each one of us. Jesus came to give you and I eternal and abundant life. Today I encourage you to be thankful and embrace the wonderful life you have been given through Jesus Christ. Live for Him and be part of what He is doing. He came to seek and save the lost. Do your part by telling someone today about Jesus Christ.
