Why did the Father send Jesus to the Earth to live and to die? John said,
“For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil” (1 John 3:8).
The devil reigns in the hearts of sinners, but when they believe in Jesus, and turn to Him in full repentance and obedience, Jesus thus destroys the works of the devil, because at the cross Jesus received what sinners deserve for their sin.
Praise God that Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil, otherwise, what would our lives be like?
