Why He Came

As we journey through this Passion Week and reflect on the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, I think it only fitting to remind ourselves of why He truly came...

"Why did Jesus come into the world? To call sinners - those who know they have a terminal disease, those who are helpless and desperate, those who are hurting, those who are hungry and thirsty, those who are weak and weary, those who are broken, those whose lives are shattered, those who are desperate - sinners who know they are unworthy yet long to be forgiven...Thus Jesus came to expose us all as sinners. That is why His message is so penetrating, so forceful. It tore our self-righteousness away and exposed our evil hearts so that we might see ourselves as sinners."
