Step 2 ~ The Problem We Face – Separation from God
Sin separates individuals from God. The result of this separation from God is death because, without a relationship with God, one cannot enter into his promise of eternal life.
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death.
But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear.
Jesus bridged the gap between us and God by dying on the cross.
