There is a form to ask any questions you have at the bottom of the page.
 
 

Why did Jesus come? ...To be rejected

But many people rejected Jesus. They thought they’d be happier making their own rules and living outside his kingdom. This rejection of the King is something we all do. Jesus called it sin.It damages our lives and will eventually leave us separated from the joy of being in the kingdom.
God won’t let those who reject the King live with him. So we face what Jesus called hell. An existence without anything good, forever.


Why did Jesus come? ...To be killed

People rejected the King so violently that they killed him by nailing him to a cross. But his death wasn't a mistake by God – it was a masterstroke.
On the cross, Jesus was cut off from God’s friendship and goodness. He chose to experience hell – so that we don’t have to. The sinless King died to take the punishment sin deserves.
Jesus was opening the way into his kingdom.


Why did Jesus come? ...To rise again

Three days after his execution, his tomb was found to be empty. Over the next few weeks many ate with Jesus. Dozens spoke with him. Hundreds saw him. Jesus the King could not be contained by death.He had risen!


What does is mean for us?

So, today, right now, Jesus is inviting people to come into his kingdom. He tells us to repent and believe the good news.
Repent means to turn around, to live with Jesus in charge instead of ourselves. Believe means to trust that Jesus has done everything we need to give us a place in his kingdom.
Living with Jesus as King isn't easy. His followers will be rejected, just as he was. But they also live a life of deep security, satisfaction, and joy, knowing God and his forgiveness, being helped by his Spirit, and looking forward to the King’s return, when he will finally establish his loving kingdom forever.
Jesus offers all this to anyone and everyone who repents and believes.
