Why Did God Become Man?
Why Jesus Did Jesus Come?

If you were God trying to communicate just how much you love mankind, what would you do? Wouldn't it make sense to come in person and show us your love? Well, God did; God became man. He came and endured everything that we endure. He proved that He loves us unconditionally and doesn't want us to be separated from Him. Jesus is God in the flesh reaching out to us. The Nativity Story is one of God's determination to communicate with us. Jesus said, "I am the way ... "

God has a plan to reach mankind and to relate to us, a plan He initiated.
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever would believe in Him, would have eternal life." John 3:16

Jesus Christ claimed to be God come down to us in the flesh communicating God's love to us.
"I and the Father are one." John 10:30

If Jesus is God, then of course He has the every right to claim that He is the only way to Himself.
"I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through me." John 14:6

No one can reach God independently by their own plan in their own self-effort.
"There is none who does good, not even one." Romans 3:12

Jesus is better anyway, because He offers eternal life as a free gift (cannot be earned by adopting a new code of ethics or meeting religious standards.)
"For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 6:23

Jesus doesn't just command you to live right, He is offers to live the Christian life from inside you.
"....... Christ in you the hope of glory." Colossians 1:26-27
"I came that they might have life and have it more abundantly." John 10:10

Jesus isn't just another better than ever forgiveness plan; He is the power to live a Godly life, His life, already built into us.
"But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the surpassing greatness of the power may be of God and not of ourselves." ll Corinthians 4:7

Jesus wants relationship: to be one Spirit with us, as He is with the Father.
"He that is joined to the Lord, is one Spirit with Him." l Corinthians 6:17
"That they may all be one; as thou Father, are in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us........ " John 17:21

Jesus births His new life into us, to live the Christian life through us.
".... Unless a man is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Don't not marvel that I said to you, 'You must be born again'."
John 3:5-7

Jesus wants us to believe in Him and invite Him in as Lord.
"Without faith it is impossible to please God." Hebrews 11:6
"Behold, I stand at the door and knock, if anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with Me." Revelation 3:20

Lord Jesus, I admit that I cannot be good enough to earn your love and acceptance. I turn from trying to manage my life in my own efforts and choose to trust you to forgive my unbelief, based on your death on the cross for me. I ask you to come into my life as Lord God and live the Christian life through me, as I cannot do it separated from you.

I choose to yield to you day by day, your all knowing, all powerful and always present wisdom is everything that I need. I choose to know you and agree with your plans and wonderful purposes for me. I trust that you are inside me now equipping me in every way that you want to express your heart in me and to a needy world through me. There is nothing more important to me than a relationship with you Jesus; you are my source.
