But GOD COMMENDED HIS LOVE TOWARD US, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)
Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that HE LOVED US, and sent his Son [to be] the propitiation for our sins. (1John 4:10)
Beloved, let us love one another: for LOVE IS OF GOD; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God,
He that loveth not knoweth not God; for GOD IS LOVE. (1John 4:7-8)

WHY DID JESUS COME?
Jesus came because of God’s great love for us.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
God wanted to be with us.
“Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.” (Mt 1:23)
Hallelujah! EMMANUEL, GOD WITH US!
