He Still Came

Featured image for “He Still Came”

He knew the incredible sacrifice that would be necessary in order to grant his Amazing Grace.

And he still came.

Expectation and anticipation are words often associated with the Advent season. The Church is waiting with eager expectation for the rejoicing that will take place on Christmas Day.


We can’t wait to say those words. We look forward to that joyful morning. Standing shoulder to shoulder with fellow believers we sing joyful songs of the birth of the Messiah.

While we anticipate and long for Christmas Day, [fusion_builder_container hundred_percent=”yes” overflow=”visible”][fusion_builder_row][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ background_position=”left top” background_color=”” border_size=”” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” spacing=”yes” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” padding=”” margin_top=”0px” margin_bottom=”0px” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_direction=”left” hide_on_mobile=”no” center_content=”no” min_height=”none”][tweetherder]I wonder what the Savior of the world was thinking before that first Christmas?[/tweetherder]

He knew.

Jesus, the Son of God, the second person of the Trinity, knew why he had to come be “with us” as a baby.
He came to earth as a human baby. Fully human. Fully divine.
He was fully aware of our sin. He was fully aware of the plan that was already in motion to redeem the World.
The pain. The suffering. The separation from the Father.

He knew.

By obeying the Father, the Son saved us.
By obeying the Father, the Son brought to us the amazing gift of GRACE.

We spend so much time (wasted time) worrying about what we have done when all we need to remember is God’s incredible GRACE.

In this season of Advent, take some time in your day to ponder the incredible, awesome, wonderful, gift of GRACE.

Realize the incredible act of sacrifice that the Son freely performed when he left his place at the right hand of the Father.

He still came.

God WITH us.

  1. This gave me chills and brought tears to my eyes. What an amazing and humbling gift we have been given through the Grace of our God through our Savior Jesus.

  2. He still came. This is a great reminder not only of the grace given to us but the grace we should give to each other. Great article!

  3. Hi Rick,
    Thanks for your thoughts on “He still came”. His stupendous sacrifice and free gift of salvation is still avaible to all who believe. The promise of Gen. 3 came about thousands of years later and was fulfilled on Calvary. The door is still open but will be shut when He returns on the clouds. Pray that by His grace all of us will be ready for that great and notable day.
    Have a wonderful, blessed Christmas.
