Getting Right with God

Question 2. 
Why did Jesus come to us?


All other religions are examples of man seeking God. Christianity is the opposite of that … it is God seeking man. Jesus said that He came “to seek and to save that which was lost,” Luke 19:10. Jesus came to our world to seek and to save lost people ... lost people like you and me.

Some people describe religion as a blind leap of faith into the dark. Actually, that is true of other religions. However, that isn’t the way of Christianity. Jesus said, “I am the light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the light of life,” John 8:12. Believing in Jesus is a rational step of faith ... a step into the true light. Other religions are examples of lost men drawing their own dead-end maps to God. Biblical Christianity is not like that. Jesus came to show us the way to God ... to be the way. Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me,” John 14:6. Jesus is the one road to God.  The Apostle Peter declared, “There is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved,” Acts 4:12. Jesus is the one bridge between God and man. “For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself as a ransom for all,” 1 Timothy 2:5-6.

Question 2: Why did Jesus come to us?

Answer: He came to seek and to save us. He came to be our light in the dark world ... to show us the way to God ... to be our way to God.
