Daily Challenge-Reflect on Why Jesus Came

December 16th, 2021

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Endurance, today’s Daily Challenge motivates us to reflect on why Jesus came to the world.

His birth took place in Bethlehem in the midst of humble circumstances. Luke 2 tells us that Mary wrapped Jesus in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.

Those are the circumstances of His birth, but why did He come to the world? What was God’s motivation for sending Jesus here 2,000 years ago?

John 3:16 and 17 give us insight: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.”

Here we see that God’s love was the motive for Jesus’ arrival, and His precious gift that He extends to us is eternal life with Him.

Take the Daily Challenge to reflect on why Jesus came to the world and be inspired by God’s love on the journey of faith.
