Salvation: Step 2

God created us in His image to have an abundant life.  He did not make us as robots to automatically love and obey Him, but gave us a will and freedom of choice.

We chose to disobey God and go our own willful way.  We still make this choice today.  This results in seperation from God.

"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


Our Attempts...

Through the ages, individuals have tried in many ways to bridge this gap...without success...

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

"But your iniquities have seperated you from God; and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear you." Isaiah 59:2
