The Will of God Always Reaps Eternal Benefits
John 6:38-40 (KJB) For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. 39 And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. 40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
Jesus Christ did not come down from heaven because He desired to live in the world. Or because He desired to be away from His Father. Certainly, His own preference would likely have been to remain in heaven. Everything in heaven is perfect and extraordinarily beautiful.
Who, in their right mind, would want to leave a perpetual paradise to come down to this wicked and diminishing earth?
However, Jesus Christ willingly came to this earth to fulfill the will of His Father. God sent His Only Son to complete an eternal spiritual transaction on Calvary. Though He could have refused to come. Or requested a host of angels to save Him from facing an agonizing physical death upon the cross. Jesus Christ chose to follow through with completing the will of His Father because He desired to obediently honor and serve God.
This is a great example for godly men and women to consider and follow in their own lives as they face opposition, hardships, and trials in their spiritual journey in this world.
When you choose to place your faith in the finished work of the Son on Calvary God promised: mankind will be lifted up on the last day (if not already present), he will enjoy fellowship with God, and have everlasting life.
