Why He Did Not Come

“For I did not come to judge the world, but to save it. There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; that very word which I spoke will condemn him at the last day.” (John 12:47–48, NIV 1984). 

My Musings – Jesus came to save, not judge. His words reveal the way of salvation. Many (most) reject those words. And though He came to save, they stand condemned already, because they do not accept His words. What words? These very words — “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6, NIV 1984).

My Advice – Once again, “God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.” (John 3:17–18, NIV 1984). He came to save you. Is that so hard to believe? Take Him at His word.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
