Why? – Good News Bible Card

 

“For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved”                          John 3:17

Why did He come?
God tells us Why:

He came to keep
       all prophecy
       from Bethlehem
       to Calvary.

He came to preach
       Good News to men
       and free those chained
       by guilt and sin.

He came to show
       us how to live;
       to overcome,
       obey, forgive.

He came to crush
       the Serpent foe
       who craves our souls
       for hell below.

He came to die,
       and dying, take
       our curse of death
       for His Name’s sake.

He rose! He won
       our lasting bliss!
       How dare we shun
       a God like this?
