ALL LIVES MATTER

ACRES OF DIAMONDS

ON ASSIGNMENT

HEAVENLY CHOICES

SATAN'S PLOT



THE MUSIC OF LIFE

MY MIRACLE

HOPE AND FAITH

CONFIDENCE IN CHRIST JESUS

Live-streaming

THE WONDERS OF HIS LOVE

SPIRITUAL THINGS

AIN'T NO ROCK

20/20 Vision

PROTECTING OUR BLINDSIDE

HE CHOOSE ME

SEEN AND LOVED BY GOD

TREASURE BOX

SETTLED OUT OF COURT

JESUS KNEW

BASKET OF EGGS

The AGONY AND THE ECSTACY

IT IS A MATTER OF THE HEART

BLIND MEN

STAY IN YOUR LANE

THE MESSIAH'S SEAT

THE SILENT CRY

THE SINFULNESS OF SIN

THE GLORY OF GOD

MORE THAN JUST A BABE

GOD'S GUARDIAN ANGELS

SHAME, OH SHAME, AMERICA

Why Did Jesus Come To Earth?
 

Why did Jesus come to earth?
What was His purpose here?
He came to teach us who God is…
To make His reflection clear.
 
He came to lead us in all Truth…
The truth some still try to dim.
He is the Way, the Truth, the Life…
All pathways lead to Him!
 
He came to magnify God’s Grace,
God’s mercy and God’s love…
To bring to earth a touch of all
The good things from above…
 
To preach the coming Kingdom…
To prepare us for His reign…
When at the end of this dark age
True Light will shine again.
 
 Came to heal the brokenhearted…
Both in body and in spirit…
To provide a precious Word from God
To all who longed to hear it.
 
There were reasons for His coming…
Much too multiple to name…
But the greatest reason of them all
Seems the hardest to explain.
 
For Almighty God came in the flesh…
(He couldn’t die any other way)
To become the perfect Lamb of God
For the sheep who’ve gone astray.
 
So, why did Jesus come to earth?
I could list them…one, two, three.
But, most of all, He came to die…
Yes, to die for you and me.

Luke 4:18-19

 "The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me,
 because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel
 to the poor; he has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
 to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight
 to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed;
 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord."
 
John 14:8-10
Philip said to Him, "Lord, show us the Father,
 and it is enough for us." Jesus said to him, "Have I
been so long with you, and yet you have not come to know Me,
 Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how can
 you say, 'Show us the Father '? "Do you not believe that I
 am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words that I say
 to you I do not speak on My own initiative, but the Father abiding
 in Me does His works.…
 
John 10:11
"I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays
 down his life for the sheep.
