Why Did The Son of God Come to the World?

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

John 3:16-18

I know there are people who question the existence of Jesus Christ. And there are some who, while admitting that He existed, they consider Him as an ordinary, like all of us man. However, it is not whether we believe in His existence or not, the truth is that Jesus has always existed and is the Son of God who came to this world with a very specific purpose.

That specific purpose is our salvation. There is who can say: Save me from what? I know there are those who think they are good, neither are lost or in danger of death. However, despite what we may think, two things happen to every man and woman on Earth. Yes we are lost because our roads do not lead us down the right path. Besides we’re not in danger of death, but we are just dead.

Scripture says in Ephesians 2:1: And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins. Then we do not doubt that all need to be saved. And the only one who can rescue us from death is the Son of God. For that He came into the world, so Het was delivered, not to condemn us, but to be saved by Him.

God has done all this for love. He gave His Son to give us a chance to be rescued from death in which we were for our offenses and sins. Not because we are worthy of God’s love. On the contrary, we have offended Him constantly breaking His Commandments, living back to Him and even denying His existence. Our deserved was to be condemned. However, God has given us a chance to be rescued from the punishment we deserve for our own fault.

In John 3:16-18, Scripture states that everyone who believes in the Son of God will not be lost but have eternal life. Further states that whoever believes in Him is not condemned. This makes it clear that believing in Jesus Christ is required for salvation, which reaffirms Acts 16:31: So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.” Believing in Jesus is to trust and put our lives in His hands, not trying to drive the boat but He let go the helm.

The final part of John 3: 16-18 says that he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. In fact, our acts for it condemn us if we refuse to believe in Jesus Christ, the message we are sending to God is that we reject pardon He gives us. Do not let pride or continue holding on to the traditions condemn you. Today believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved. Give control of your life to Him and have assured eternal life. God bless you.

Best Demonstration of God’s Love

In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

1 John 4: 9-10

Much has been written about love. Literature and cinema are full of stories of unselfish love, from Romeo and Juliet to the fictional characters of Jack and Rose in the film Titanic directed by James Cameron in 1997. However, none of those beautiful love stories can be compared with the story of God’s love for us.

My native country has given excellent composers. Currently, no doubt Juan Luis Guerra is the most well known internationally for the quality of his musical work. However, the best song of all time written by a Dominican is definitely “For Love” of Rafael Solano, which premiered in November 1968. Many famous singers, including Placido Domingo, Marco Antonio Muñiz, Vicky Carr, Gloria Estefan and Jon Secada have recorded this song, which has also been translated into several languages.

There are several verses of this popular song about love of God. The first one says, “For love have been created men on the face of the Earth.” Another part of the song says: “For love was once to Calvary with a cross slope him who also for love gave his whole soul.” Regarding this, John 3:16 tells us: For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

God’s love is unconditional and its main feature is giving up. There is no greater love than this, as Jesus Himself told His disciples in John 15:13: Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. If we were impressed when we saw on the screen as Jack sacrifice his life to save Rose in Titanic, this gesture is nothing compared to what made Jesus Christ the Son of God on the cross of Calvary for you and for me.

Some will say that loves God that he or she strives to be a good person and fulfill what he or she thinks is the will of our Father in heaven. However, our own sinful nature leads us constantly to fail the God who we claim to love. Every sin is a betrayal of loved God, whom we are being unfaithful with our actions. So no one can feel secure that loves God when our spiritual adultery says otherwise.

Surely God loves us, so that He has sacrificed His Son for each of us. Jesus was delivered to suffer the worst death to give us a chance to be forgiven for all our sins and all that was for His great love. All we can do to please the outpouring of love is to repent of our sins and make Jesus our Lord. God bless you.
