Why Jesus came

‘Enoch walked faithfully with God three hundred years.’ Genesis 5:22 NIV

Life is a journey with a definite beginning and end. And if you’re wise you’ll do what Enoch did for three hundred years—he walked with God. Can you imagine how well you’d know God after spending all those years with Him? There’s nothing dull or boring about walking with God. The Psalmist says, ‘You have made known to me the path of life; You fill me with joy in Your presence.’ (Psalm 16:11 NIV) God made you for Himself, and only when you discover His purpose for your life will you find peace and joy.

If you were to take a fish out of the ocean and place it on the beach, you’d see its scales dry up as it gasped for breath. Is that fish happy? No. If you covered it with a mountain of cash would it be happy? No. Would an iPad, a good book or a cool drink make it happy? No. Would a new wardrobe? No. Only one thing will make it happy: putting it back in the water. That fish will never be happy on the beach because it wasn’t made for the beach. It was made for the ocean, in the same way you were made for fellowship with God. You’ll always feel like a fish out of water—never knowing peace and joy—till you find Him.

And the good news is He’s as close to you as a prayer. Once you ask Him into your heart you’ll never feel empty again. Do you know why Jesus came that first Christmas? He tells us: ‘So that [you] may have the full measure of My joy within.’ (John 17:13 NIV)
