Why Did My Savior Come to Earth?
Author: Jim Faughn
13 chapters, 140 pages
“The Word became flesh and dwelt among us…”
Those words recorded in John 1:14 have resulted in multiplied volumes being written, sermons being preached, lives being changed, and souls being saved. Nothing that has been said or done has answered every question we may have about a subject as intriguing and important as the Incarnation. But while such a task may be impossible, Jim Faughn provides some insight concerning a question posed in an old hymn: “Why did my Savior come to earth?”
You may be surprised to learn that Jesus actually gave a number of reasons for His mission. Each of these is presented in this book in order to facilitate a greater understanding of, and appreciation for, the One who told His Father, “I have come to do your will, O God” (Heb. 10:7).
As the book is read, there will be a deeper appreciation for the answer given in that same old hymn—”because He loved me so.”
