Our condition: First, we must understand that we are separated from God. The chasm dividing us is both wide and deep.
We inherited a fatal defect at birth. As a result, we have lived our lives independently from him.
The Bible emphasizes this stark reality: “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).
If we can’t come to grips with the fact that sin separates us from God, we’ll never come home spiritually, for there is no need for a savior.
God’s remedy: Second, we need to be very clear in understanding who Jesus is and what he has done for us, in order that we might confidently place our faith in him.
