WHY JESUS CAME
Categories: Daily Devotional
“Forasmuch then as the children are partaker of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same; that through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage”
When Adam fell, God’s agenda for man was put on hold, the devil taught he had triumphed but God had the ultimate joker in His Son Jesus, who was the second Adam. Yes the first Adam fell but not the second Adam in the person of Jesus. Jesus triumphed and that is why I know you will win. Even though your back may be on the floor now you will win the battles that have risen against you. Proverbs 24:16 says “For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief”.
The scripture above tells us why Jesus came. Like young people will say “I feel you”! Jesus felt us. He felt our pain, frustration and position. You cannot help somebody if you don’t know how they feel. So He had to put on humanity, came down to feel where we were and He decided to repair what was damaged by the first Adam. He took our sin upon Himself and paid the penalty of sin which is death so that you and I may be free from the fear of death. That is the significance of Good Friday that is why you must rightly appropriate the benefits and dividend of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. He died for your sin and rose for your justification.
There are things you shouldn’t tolerate and never accommodate. You must not accommodate sickness, poverty, barrenness and frustration or anything that negates the finished work of Calvary. Shut your doors against them, you don’t belong there. You are an alien to sickness, barrenness and poverty. That is not where you are meant to be seen, after all that Christ did for you at Calvary. No, that is not where you are meant to be, you have a better place, promise and a better covenant now in Christ Jesus. The lie of the enemy is lifted over your head. All that Christ paid for, you will enjoy them all in Jesus name. Your best days are ahead of you. You will bask in the euphoria of Christ victory on the cross. You cannot be defeated anymore. Let this information bring divine illumination to your spirit, soul and body in Jesus name. Go and prosper. You are highly favoured and greatly blessed and deeply loved.
