To Give His Life | For This Reason | Tim McConnell

To Give His Life | For This Reason | Tim McConnell

Feb 28, 2021

Passage: John 12:26-36

Preacher: Tim McConnell

Series: To Give His Life

Category: Lent, New Testament



Jesus knows what He is doing every step of the way. He has no doubt that He has come to give His life. In fact, the whole plan is verified by God’s voice from heaven. The name will be glorified by Jesus being lifted up on the cross. There is no reason to try to escape this task, Jesus says, because it is the very reason He came. We sometimes think of Jesus as a nice teacher or a moral inspiration. He is. But the purpose of His coming to earth and ministering among us was to go to the cross for our sins. Lifted up, Jesus draws all people. All people know at some level their need for Jesus and the saving work of the cross.


Jesus came to earth for one reason, to give His life away for us. In every moment of ministry, every exchange or interaction, Jesus always knew what was coming. The last week was spent in Jerusalem. This year, for 40 days leading up to Easter, we will relive that week with Jesus. Jesus knew why He came. He came To Give His Life.
