Why did Jesus come to earth 2,000 years ago and why did he come in the flesh as a human. The answer to this question is far more important than you are I might even think and we need to know the answer.
So in this article that what we’re going to talk about let’s get to it. All right so why was it important for Jesus Christ to come down to earth in the flesh as a human being.
Well, you might say well Daniel is because you had to come as the Messiah to die in our place. So that we can be saved and yes you’re right but there are also many other reasons and let me explain those reasons to you.
The first human Adam sinned against God. He was disobedient and it brought sin into the world and they also separated us from God and to repair this relationship between us and God to restore it.
God sent Jesus Christ to come down to earth as a human to live a life without sin and Paul talks about this in Romans five verse 18.
He says therefore after one man’s offense judgment came to all men resulting In condemnation, even so through one man’s righteous act, the free gift came for all men resulting in justification of our lives by one man’s disobedience.
Sinners so also by one man’s obedience many will be made righteous. So when you celebrate Christmas remember Christmas is not about Santa Claus or just getting presents but it’s about Jesus Christ that came down to earth to live a perfectly pure life without sin. He can carry your sins on the cross and die in your place. So that you will be saved so that you can have eternal life.
If you accept this gift and this is a gift a free gift Women verse 19: As many people were made sinners by one man’s disobedience.
So will many others be made righteous by one man obeying? This is why Paul calls Jesus Christ the second Adam in 1 Corinthians 15 and call Adam the first man and Christ the second man in 1 Corinthians 15 verse 47. So Jesus had to be a human to represent us and obey God perfectly without sin.
To Be A Substitute Sacrifice
If Jesus wasn’t human he could not have come and died in our place on the cross. He couldn’t have paid the price for our sins Hebrew 2 verse 17 says therefore in all things he had to be made like his brethren To be a faithful and merciful high priest in matters pertaining to God, to make propitiation to the sins of his people.
Suffered being tempted he is able to aid those who are tempted God is just and to be able to save us. He had to make Jesus in every way that we are so that he might become an acceptable sacrifice a substitute sacrifice.
So it is important to know that if Jesus Christ was not fully human he couldn’t have died for our sins.
To Be The One And Only Mediator Between God And Humans
When sin came into the world we as humans were alienated from God and we needed somebody to bring us back to a healthy relationship with God and only Jesus Christ qualifies for that role the Bible has the following say there is only one God, one mediator between God and men, and God in Christ Jesus.
He gave Himself as a ransom for all to testify in due time to enable him to fulfill this, Role as a mediator between God and humans we needed somebody to be both fully God and fully human.
Only Jesus Christ fulfills that role because Jesus is 100% God and 100% human. Now that might be hard for some people to understand but for humans, of course, it is impossible, but for God, it is not.
To Be Our Example In Life
Jesus Christ came down to earth to our example of how we should live our lives here on earth. And our goal as true Christians should always be to be like Jesus Christ in 1 John 2 verse 6.
He says he who says he abides in him ought himself also to walk just as he walked do you really live your life according to the example that Jesus Christ left us Hebrews 12 says let us lay aside every weight and the sin which So easily traps us, let us not allow this to happen.
Let us race with endurance the race set before us looking up to Jesus, the Author, and Finisher of our faith, and Galatians 5. verse 1. Therefore, follow the example of God and be close children. Walk-in love like Christ loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us. God, I love a sweet-smelling smell.
Does it make you feel good to be around other people? if you sometimes struggle with this then just ask yourself what would Jesus Christ do in this situation right now.
The Pattern For Being Redeemed Bodies
When Jesus Christ died and then after three days when he rose from the grave he rose in a different body and Paul explains this in 1 Corinthians 15. And says Jesus rose in a body that was imperishable or the spiritual body that is raised in glory. And this new body that Jesus had is the pattern for what our bodies will look like one day when we are raised from the grave.
Jesus is the first fruit according to 1 Corinthians 15 verse 23 and in verse 49, it says and as we have borne the image of the man of dust we shall also bear the image of the heavenly the man said Jesus had to be raised as a human being to be the firstborn of the Dead in Colossians 1 also talks about this in verses 17 and 18 by saying and he is before all things He is the center of all things and the head of the church.
The beginning. Listen to this: The firstborn from the dead. He may have had the preeminence in all things.
To Sympathize With God As A High Priest
Now Jesus went through a lotta pain and suffering while he was on Earth and if he was not fully human he would not have experienced what we go through of our struggles.
Hebrews 2 verse 18 says for him that he himself has suffered being tempted he is able to aid those who are tempted and later at the end of chapter 4.
it goes on by saying for we do not have a high priest Who We cannot sympathize with or understand our weaknesses but were in all points tempted yet without sin. Let us, therefore, come boldly to God’s throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in the time of need.
To fulfill God’s Promises
God always keeps his promises everything around us always changed and that is uncertain but God never changed proverbs. 30 verse 5 says every word of God is pure he is a shield to those who put their trust in him.
Jesus fulfilled around 300 prophecies from the Old Testament and some of these are very specific prophecies for example there are over 20 GS within the 24 hours of Jesus’s crucifixion.
It was prophesized that Jesus would be deserted by his disciples that he would be falsely accused brutally beaten that he would not retaliate he would be executed with criminals his hands and feet would be pierced his bones would not be broken they would gamble for his clothes his mother would be a virgin the exact place of his birth now there’s a lot more but you get the point.
Jesus Christ is the only religious founder compared to other religious founders that could claim anything like this is because God maybes promise hundreds of years before Jesus came down to earth as a human.
And they all came true and Jesus himself is the promise of the Messiah that would come from the line of David and come to save the world and Jesus Christ himself the thief doesn’t come to steal, kill, and destroy.
I came that they might have life. more abundantly I am The Good Shepherd gives his life for the Sheep and Jesus loves you so much that he died in your place he took all your sins on him as punishment. And he suffered so that you don’t have to and all he asks is that you’re loving that you accept him as Lord and Savior of your life.
it is his gift to you and now you know why Jesus came to earth as a human in the flesh is the biggest miracle that this world has ever seen. It has the power to save our lives remember God loves you.
