THREE IMPORTANT THINGS JESUS CAME TO DO – Pastor Chris

He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil (1 John 3:8).

Jesus had a clear purpose for coming to this world. The first is to destroy the works of the devil. The Bible tells us in Acts 10:38“How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.”

Not only did Jesus come to destroy the works of the devil, He also came so that we may have and enjoy life. The Bible says in John 10:10“The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows)” (AMPC). He made us dispensers of life—the God-life.

Thirdly, and this is the chief of all that He came to do; He came to bring us into fellowship with divinity. The Bible says, “God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord” (1 Corinthians 1:9). This means we’ve been brought into oneness with Jesus Christ. We’ve been brought into friendship with Him.

In this fellowship, He knows you personally and shares His life and EVERYTHING He has and represents with you. Hallelujah! That’s why the Bible calls us joint-heirs with Him (Romans 8:17). We’re partakers—associates or comrades of the God-kind.

No wonder Paul said, “…all things are yours” (1 Corinthians 3:21), because you’re one with the Monarch of the universe—the One who owns and reigns over all things.

PRAYER / CONFESSION

I take charge of my life and enjoy it to its fullest, for Christ has made me a sharer, partner and participator of the divine nature. I’m an associate of the God-kind, having been made free from the corrupting influences, decadence and destruction in the world. Therefore, I take advantage of the immense treasures and blessings of the Christ-life. Glory to God!
