For This Purpose

“For this purpose came Christ Jesus into the world……”

Many have spoken on Jesus’ purpose for entering the world in flesh. The one purpose that I mainly hold to, which may very well encompass them all, is:  “…to undo the works of the Devil.”

So what or who is “the Devil”?  And what are its “works”?

You can make your own list.  Just be sure that Christ Jesus came into the world to undo its works, by His death and resurrection.  That is the victory.  That is the undoing.

By his death AND resurrection Christ Jesus defeated forever all the ‘works’ of the devil.  Therefore we have no fear, because we have nothing to fear as sons and heirs of the kingdom of God.  We have authority and we have power.

“For God has not given us a spirit  of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”  And what God has given to us in Christ Jesus no man or devil can take from us.  We can relax.  We can be at peace.  Because we KNOW that “For this purpose…. .”

Have a good life.  Walk in the light.  Live the victory.
