The Reason He Came
The death of Jesus Christ is the fulfillment in history of the very mind and intent of God. There is no place for seeing Jesus Christ as a martyr. His death was not something that happened to Him— something that might have been prevented. His death was the very reason He came.
John 19:30 ... When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
John 17:4 ... I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.
Hebrews 10:9-10 ... Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
2 Corinthians 5:21 ... For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in 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. ❤
