For all l have sinned and fall short of the glory of God
Mankind was not right with God. Original sin, coupled with the many sins of man, had tainted man’s relationship with the creator insomuch that God had to teach man of ways to purify from sin in order to enter into his presence. Sin is an abomination to God, and as light has no relationship with darkness, so does God not have a relationship with sin. But although the law helped man rid himself of his guilty state, the hearts of men remained sinful, and the law impossible to entirely uphold.
Something had to be done, and there was no way this was going to come from man. So God devised a plan, a plan to reconcile man to himself, to enjoy and be enjoyed by man, and to make the sinful condition right. The only way to remedy the condition permanently though was for a sacrifice so pure, and so blameless, that it’s effects would echo through time, and its validity to continue deep into the future. And so, God sent his son Jesus, shed himself of all his glory, and came to live the life of a man. He was tempted as we are, and overcame, giving hope that living holy, as he is holy, can be achieved; but only through the blood of Jesus Christ. We know that because if this, we have a savior that not only loves us, but has lived our experiences, has shared our
pains, experienced our joys, and set forth an example to be followed by all.
God sent his son to be the savior of the world, and thus bridging the gap between God and mankind; reconciling created to creator. What this means is that not only are you no longer a slave to sin and fear, but that you are empowered to live a holy life, full of power, life, and love. The only thing that God asks of you today is to give him your heart, allow yourself to be transformed, and experience what your life can be like lived to the fullest with Jesus.
