Jesus Christ, the Son of God tells us:
Where he came from:
Jesus said I have come down from heaven (John 6:38).
You belong to this world here below, but I come from above. You are from this world, but I am not from this world (John 8:23).
What he came to do:
Jesus said, I came, not to judge the world, but to save it (John 12:47).
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because he has chosen me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind; to set free the oppressed and announce that the time has come when the Lord will save his people (Luke 4:18-19).
and that he….did not come to be served; he came to serve and to give his life to redeem many people (Mark 10:45).
Who he is:
I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never be hungry; he who believes in me will never be thirsty (John 6:35).
I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will have the light of life and will never walk in darkness (John 8:12).
I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die (John 11:25).
I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one goes to the Father except by me (John 14:6).
What he offers:
I am telling you the truth: everyone who sins is a slave of sin. If the Son sets you free, then you will be really free (John 8:34, 36).
I have come in order that you might have life, life in all its fullness (John 10:10).
What he requires:
‘COME’, ‘REPENT’ and ‘BELIEVE’
I will never turn away anyone who comes to me (John 6:37).
Turn away from your sins and believe the good news (Mark 1:15).
I am telling you the truth: whoever hears my words and believes in him who sent me has eternal life. He will not be judged but has already passed from death to life (John 5:24).
Stop your doubting, and believe! How happy are those who believe without seeing me! (John 20:27, 29).
