Luke 1:79 To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death,
To guide our feet into the way of peace.
Why did Jesus come? He came to give light to those in living in darkness and death. Jesus came to get us to the way of peace. From the very announcement of His birth, we know why He is here. Jesus knew where people were without Him. He came to make a difference. He came to change their lives and eternity.
How can I read this without thinking that I am responsible to get in the yoke with Him? I can help those that sit in darkness. I can get hope to those that live in the shadow of death.
Do you want to make a difference? You can do that by sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ. You can do that by telling others about what He did on the cross of Calvary. We enter into His life and ministry.
