Why They Came


About fifty years prior to the coming of Christ, Julius Caesar is famous for saying, ” Veni, vidi, vici.”  His report on the outcome of his British campaign was very short: “I came, I saw, I conquered.”  He was a war machine, apt for that in every way.  His place in history is well-defined in that way.

People were not as sure about Christ’s purpose on this earth, so He had to declare himself.  In one such declaration in
John 10:10b (NKJV) Jesus states,  “… I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”

One came to take life and the other to give abundant life.  Given a choice of which one to interact with, who would choose the killer?  I choose abundant life.  What about you?
