GOD HAS A PURPOSE:
God has a plan for our lives. The Bible states that plan this way:
“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." John 3:16 NIV
God wants us to have life and life eternal. Jesus also said that he came that we can have an abundant life not just in eternity someday but have an abundant life now.
"I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly" John 10:10 NASB
MAN HAS A PROBLEM:
God's desire is for us to spend enternity with Him in heaven. 2 Pet. 3:9 tells us that God is not willing for anyone to be lost or to die separated from Himself. But man has a problem and is separated from God. That problem is sin.
God loves us and wants us to be with HIm, but He must punish sin. He has provided away for us to be forgiven through His son Jesus. How can a person have that full abundant life and forgivenss?
Jesus is God and became a man.
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." John 1:1 NIV
"And the Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us." John 1:14 NIV.
Jesus did not just appear to be a man, He became a man and walked, became hungry, became tired, he was man and yet he was also God walking with us.
Jesus lived a sinless perfect life the Bible tells us that Jesus was tempted just like we are tempted and yet He did not sin. We deserve to die, to pay the price for our sins, Jesus lived a sinless life and yet He died for sin, for my sins and for yours.
"But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Rom. 5:8 NIV
