Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.
King James Bible
We’ve all heard the saying “Jesus is the reason for the Season!” but the season isn’t the only reason for Jesus. Let’s take a look at some other reasons for Jesus…
Jesus is the Reason to Love. This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. John 15:12
Jesus is the Reason to Live. For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring. Acts 17:28
Jesus is the Reason to Witness. And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Matthew 28:18-19
Jesus is the Reason to Give. Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come before him: worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. 1 Chronicles 16:29
Jesus is the Reason to Sing. Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee. Hebrews 2:12
Jesus is the Reason to Hope. Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Romans 5:1-2
Jesus is the Reason to Believe. That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. Romans 10:9-11
Jesus is the Reason to Stand. And the people answered and said, God forbid that we should forsake the Lord, to serve other gods; Joshua 24:16
Jesus is the Reason to Speak. And when they had brought them, they set them before the council: and the high priest asked them, Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name? and, behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man's blood upon us. Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men. Acts 5;27-29
Jesus is the Reason to Pray! And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. Romans 8:27
JESUS is the REASON!
