He came that we may have life
Jesus Christ did not come into this world to destroy our lives, but
to fulfill our lives.
He did not come to judge, but to show mercy.
He came that we may have life and that abundantly.
He did not come into this world to condemn us, but to save us.
He did not come to enslave us or bring us into captivity; but to set
the captives free and liberate us.
He came to set us free from the bondage of sin and for our sin's
sentence of death by dying in our place when he died on the cross of
He came to replace our despair with hope; our bitterness and hate
with love; our sadness with joy; our anguish with peace; our darkness
with light and our empty lives with abundance and fulfillment.
