Why did he come to earth, because he loved me so?.The Creator sent his son to earth because he is a personal God. In the patriarchal age, he spoke directly to the fathers of the families. He did not wait for them to be at worship, but spoke to them right where they were. Even in Old Covenant times, he desired a personal relationship.
He shows that he loves us, by the fact that he is strict, and wants us to be the best we can be.In the law of Moses, he gave many rules and regulations that involved the personal lives of his people. Although it was nearly impossible to keep all those laws, it shows he was very concerned about them.
Perhaps he wanted them to learn they could not work enough to save themselves.Every time they sinned, they were punished. Every time they did right they were blessed. Every time they left God, he pleaded for them to come back, and every time they did, he welcomed them back. This shows that he is truly a loving deity, who provides a way for us to be restored even before we do wrong.
He will do everything in his power to keep his us from destroying ourselves with sin.The Lord worked with these ancient people to give them some idea of whom he is. After thousands of years they still had a fuzzy concept of their God. He sent Jesus to the earth to demonstrate his Father's character, and introduce the coming spiritual kingdom.
He personally selected and trained the apostles, who turned the world upside down.Jesus spoke to the crowds, but he also spent a lot of time speaking personally to individuals. He welcomed everyone, publicans, prostitutes, the rich, the poor, even little children. He attended weddings, he ate with publicans and sinners, he was interested in all people and all occasions. He is the kind of person that you can ask for help with a problem, and feel confident you will be treated as a close friend.When he saw someone with a physical or spiritual disease, Jesus gave them whatever they needed.
He had compassion, because he felt, what they did. When we are in trouble, he feels for us, because he is a personal God that experienced what we do.He sent the Holy Spirit to dwell in us because he desires a personal relationship.
He wants us to tell him all about our doubts, our fears, our pains and our joys. He wants to be a part of our thought process because he is our personal friend as well as our God. He is interested in what we do through the week. He wants to help us with whatever problem we have.
He is the living, breathing proof of First John 4:8 that says God is love. He did not just tell us he loves us; he demonstrated it! He offered his life in place of ours. How could he love us more than that? How could he be more personal than that?.He died for me! I know that he died for all who will accept him, but that does not change the fact that he died for me.
