The mission of Christ
Christ’s mission on Earth was to do the will of his Father. His life was always surrendered to God. We see this from the beginning, when he was separated from his parents. He said to them: “Didn’t you know that I have to be in my Father’s house?” (Lk 2.49 NIV).
The heavenly Father’s desire was for the lost to return to Him. That is why Jesus, despite being king, did not come to be served but to serve, even until death (Mt 20:28). His ultimate goal was to become the sacrifice necessary to atone for humanity’s sin and give us access to the Father.
To carry out his mission, Jesus suffered a lot. But even in his darkest hour, he did not stray from his calling (26:39). As a faithful Son, He gave us the only way to the Father and to eternal life: Himself ( Jn 14.6). Those who put their faith in him are the body of his church, and they will see him in glory when they die.
Jesus said: “He who has seen me has seen the Father” (14.9); actually, the two are one (10.30). He is today seated at the right hand of the Father, interceding for us ( Ro 8 .34). One day, He will return to judge sinners and reward the righteous. Are you ready to see him face to face? The only way to be prepared is to receive Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior.
Because of Heavenly Father’s unlimited love for us, He gave His Son the mission to pay humanity’s debt of sin so that we could all have eternal life. If you put your faith in Jesus Christ as your Savior, you will be united with the Father right now, and for eternity.
