Why Christ Came

Stuart Briscoe

Here’s something to ask yourself: Is all of the activity around Christmas keeping me from experiencing Christmas?

It may sound like an oxymoron, but it’s not. Christmas has become so full of sales, parties, and wrapping gifts that it’s easy—too easy—to become distracted from the true meaning of this special time. Have you stopped to really reflect on why Jesus came to earth for you? Are you profoundly awestruck that the Creator of the world reached down from heaven, through Christ, just for you? Why would He do that?

In this series from Stuart, he strips away the distractions and shares four reasons why Jesus came.

Messages From This Series:

The majority of people in America know that Christmas originally had something to do with Christ coming into the world. But that does not mean they understand why Christ came. But Scripture is perfectly clear on the issue: “Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” (1 Tim. 1:15). What does that mean? How did He do it? So what? 

Scripture: 1 Timothy 1:15-1:17

In his trial before Pontius Pilate, the Roman Procurator of Galilee, Jesus made a definitive statement about His coming into the world that clearly states why He came. “For this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth.”

Scripture: John 18:28-18:38

Knowing Jesus was the Messiah, His first disciples expected Him to bring peace and freedom to Israel. Similar expectations are voiced each Christmas time as we sing, “Peace on earth, goodwill to men.” But Jesus said otherwise! 

Scripture: Matthew 10:34-10:42

When Jesus’ listeners heard Him announce that He had come into the world in order that they might have life, they must have recognized immediately that He was obviously not referring to physical existence. But they had no idea what He did mean (vs. 6). Do we? 

Scripture: John 10:1-10:10
