He Came but Why?

The Lord Jesus Christ did not come just to teach us how to live, nor did He seek to show us how to die. God tells us why He came.
The Bible says, "Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners." 1 Tim. 1:15. This is the reason for His coming—"to save sinners."
He did not come "to save those who feel that they are good enough to take their chances on judgment day," nor did He come "to save those who by works of righteousness hope to earn salvation." He did not come "to save those who feel sorry for their sins and are trying to do better." No, He came, God tells us, "to save sinners"!
It is said of Him, "This Man receiveth sinners." Luke 15:2. His call, "Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest" is directed to those who realize that they are sinners and need a Savior.
The Lord Jesus Christ is the wonderful Savior God sent to save sinners! He saves them now and for eternity, for He has said, "Him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out." John 6:37.
Friend, ask the Lord Jesus Christ to be your Savior now, and according to His own Word He will save you.
"Wherefore He is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him." Heb. 7:25.
