Jesus (4)

I have many jobs to do every week — grocery shopping, doctor’s visits, cleaning house. Some of these jobs are not always fun to do. And they take up a lot of my time.
When Jesus came to earth, He had a job to do. My jobs are small, but Jesus had a big job to do. His job was the most important job anyone has ever had to do.
Jesus describes Himself and His job in verses 2-3 of our Bible Reading. “You gave the Son power over all people so that he could give eternal life to all those you have given to him. And this is eternal life: that people can know you, the only true God, and that they can know Jesus Christ, the one you sent.” Jesus did the job that God sent Him to do. Jesus willingly gave up His life so you and I can have our sins forgiven and live with Him forever.
Jesus brought us forgiveness and eternal life. I hope you have accepted this wonderful gift.
