I Have Come

Kidz World Today - Children’s Church
John 10:10 NKJV
10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
Confession of Faith
I am not moved by what I see or by what I feel. I am moved by what I believe. I believe the WORD of God! The victory is mine! I have it now! I can see it through the eyes of my faith!
Last week
We started this Christmas season off by celebrating Communion and remembering What Jesus Did For each one of us
Today I want to look at what Jesus Said in a specific example of Why He Came to earth
John 10:10 NKJV
10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
I Have Come
That They May Have Life
And That They May Have It More Abundantly
LIfe
1. Life is the energy, the force, the power of being.
2. Life is the opposite of perishing.
It is deliverance from condemnation and death. It is the stopping or cessation of deterioration, decay, and corruption
John 3:16 NKJV
16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
John 5:24 NKJV
24 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.
John 10:28 NKJV
28 And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.
3. Life is eternal
It is forever.
John 17:3 NKJV
3 And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.
It is the very life of God Himself
John 17:3 NKJV
3 And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.
However, eternal life does not refer just to duration. Living forever would be a curse for some persons.
The idea of eternal life is also quality, a certain kind of life, a life that consistently knows love, joy, peace, power, and responsibility
. 4. Life is satisfaction (John 6:35).
John 6:35 NKJV
35 And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.
6. Life is found only in God. God is the source and author of life, and it is God who has appointed Jesus Christ to bring life to man. Jesus Christ gives the very life of God Himself
7. Life has now been revealed. It has been unveiled and is clearly seen in Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ shows man what life is
John 1:4–5 NKJV
4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
John 5:26 NKJV
26 For as the Father has life in Himself, so He has granted the Son to have life in Himself,
1 John 1:2 NLT
2 This one who is life itself was revealed to us, and we have seen him. And now we testify and proclaim to you that he is the one who is eternal life. He was with the Father, and then he was revealed to us.
8. Life only comes to a man by believing in Jesus Christ. A man outside Jesus Christ only exists.
He merely has the existence of an animal. Real life is found only in God. This is to be expected and it is logically true, for God is the creator of life. As the creator of life, He alone knows what life really is and what it is supposed to be
John 3:36 NLT
36 And anyone who believes in God’s Son has eternal life. Anyone who doesn’t obey the Son will never experience eternal life but remains under God’s angry judgment.”
John 5:24 NLT
24 “I tell you the truth, those who listen to my message and believe in God who sent me have eternal life. They will never be condemned for their sins, but they have already passed from death into life.
John 6:47 NLT
47 “I tell you the truth, anyone who believes has eternal life.
Without Christ, there would be no life whatsoever. Life is in Him, within His very being. All things exist and have their being (life) in Him.
2. Life is purpose, meaning, and significance of being. Christ is life; He is... • the very purpose of life. • the very meaning of life. • the very significance of life.
3. Life is perfection.
Life is all that a man must be and possess in order to live perfectly. This is what is meant by life.
Life is completeness of being, absolute satisfaction, the fulness of all good, and the possession of all good things.
Life is perfect love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and self-control
Galatians 5:22–23 NKJV
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.
Galatians 5:22–23 The Message
22 But what happens when we live God’s way? He brings gifts into our lives, much the same way that fruit appears in an orchard—things like affection for others, exuberance about life, serenity. We develop a willingness to stick with things, a sense of compassion in the heart, and a conviction that a basic holiness permeates things and people. We find ourselves involved in loyal commitments, 23 not needing to force our way in life, able to marshal and direct our energies wisely. Legalism is helpless in bringing this about; it only gets in the way.
