He Did It Just for Us

One of the most amazing and yet baffling truths of Scripture is that Jesus chose to come to this earth to be our Savior. From our human perspective, it is very difficult to understand why Jesus would be willing to leave the glory of heaven to come to this sinful world, knowing that He would be rejected and brutally murdered by people.

Even more baffling is the fact that Jesus would be willing to be judged for the sins of the people who killed Him. The truth is, He was judge for the sins of all mankind.

Why would Jesus do this? Because He loves us! He endured the rejection, the agony of the cross and the wrath of God to provide forgiveness for our sin. Jesus declared in John 3:16, “God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”

Isn’t that amazing? We deserved God’s judgment as sinners, but Jesus took God’s judgment in our place. As a result, any sinful human being can be forgiven and enjoy eternity with God simply by placing his or her faith in Jesus.

Aren’t you glad Jesus was willing to come to this earth to die on the cross to be our Savior? His love is amazing. He did it just for us.
