    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.
    Romans 3:23

    For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
    Romans 6:23

    There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death.
    Proverbs 14:12

    But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear.
    Isaiah 59:2

     Jesus bridged the gap between us and God by dying on the cross.
