I find it easy to breeze over the ministry and impact Jesus had on earth. His life was only 33 years, and His ministry was only 3 of those years. However, His impact is immeasurable. When we hear the verse, “For the Son of Man came to seek and save the lost,” we are able to see what He came to do on earth, and enable His followers to do.
Jesus came to earth to seek out the people that no one wanted anything to do with — He reached out to the ‘sinners’ of the day.
Jesus came to earth to bring the people salvation — eternal life with Him.
His purpose was the Gospel. Two thousand years later and that is still His purpose — to seek and save the lost.
