Last night my Father in law and I were pondering this question. He asked me if the Jewish people had everything that they needed to approach God, then why did Jesus come? I said He came to give people life (John 10:10). But here is what my Father in Law said.
Jesus came to give people hope! Have you thought about where you would be without hope. The hope that there is a better life than this one? Have you stopped to consider that because of the resurrection we have hope?
Yes Jesus came to deliver us all from sin, but after that to give us hope that He would make things better on the other side. And that friend is something that you can take to the bank.
What do you think? I would like to hear your comments.
