WE ARE LOVED - God loves
us, and created us to be in a personal relationship with Him.
God loves us: John 3.16 For God so loved the world
that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him
shall not perish but have eternal life.
Life is found in knowing God: John 17.3
Now this is eternal life: that they may know You, the only true
God, and Jesus Christ, whom You have sent.
WE ARE SEPARATED
- People are sinful, and because of this sin, we are separated from
God and cannot know Him personally or experience His love.
Weve all sinned: Romans 3.23
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
The punishment for sin is death: Romans 6.23
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal
life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
