Life. In Light Of Eternity.

Putting Life in Perspective…and writing stories

Advent: 16 December

Jesus said in John 10:10

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.

Jesus came so that we may have life and have it abundantly. Christ came into the world, in a manager that WE could have life. Now that statement is pretty familiar to us and has been misused by some, but let me make this connection for you today.

Jesus coming into the world as a newborn baby meant we would have new life. His earthly life beginning meant that the power of death was soon to be defeated. Christ’s coming abolished death (2 Timothy 1:10). Death’s days were numbered when Christ was born and not only that but new life would be possible through him for all who believe.

This time of year is when we consider that Jesus came into this world to have victory over death. The penalty of our sin which is death and separation from God. Was to be replaced with life, abundant life which meant forgiveness of our sin and our relationship with God being restored. That is why Christ came into the world. To bring everlasting life.

1 Corinthians 15:55-57

“O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting? ”The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
