Came to Die

Filed under: Bible,Christ,devotion,God,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:00 am

Matthew 20:28 even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

We are born to live. When a child dies we grieve because they didn’t get to live a life. Our entire emphasis from the time we enter this earth is living. Jesus came to this earth to die. He knew the horrible death He would face and went right to it, ministering as He walked this earth. He never asked for favors or sympathy but taught us about His and the Father’s love for us and how we could live a full and abundant life in obedience to God. He gives us a purpose for our living. As we walk this earth we are to share His love and how others can live a full and abundant life in Jesus. Our emphasis in living isn’t in getting but in giving. Jesus is the only One ever to be born on this earth for the purpose of dying. He took our place. We are here to live for Him. Are we?
