Separation from GodGod’s Purpose for You.
The problem is we all have made wrong choices in life. The Bible calls these wrong choices “sin” which in the original Greek language means “missing the mark” … like an archer missing his target.
The Apostle Paul explains,
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23, NIV).
Have you ever really thought about your own personal sin?
The Bible teaches us that God is absolutely pure and holy … and that He cannot tolerate sin. The Bible states,
For the wages of sin is death…(Romans 6:23, NLT)
Just when it all seems so hopeless, God intervenes. He has made a way for sin to no longer be a barrier. God has a solution.
Psalms 119:121-128 (KJV) I have done judgment and justice: leave me not to mine oppressors.
Be surety for thy servant for good: let not the proud oppress me.
Mine eyes fail for thy salvation, and for the word of thy righteousness.
Deal with thy servant according unto thy mercy, and teach me thy statutes.
I am thy servant; give me understanding, that I may know thy testimonies.
It is time for thee, LORD, to work: for they have made void thy law.
Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold.
Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way.
