((how to get powers of prayers for pastors))) +27784115746 in UK London south Africa Botswana Namibia Zimbabwe Zambia God created you. Not only that, he loves you so much that he wants you to know him now and spend eternity with him. Jesus said, 'For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.'1
Jesus came so that each of us could know and understand God in a personal way. Jesus alone can bring meaning and purpose to life.
What keeps us from knowing God? …
We sense that separation, that distance from God because of our sin. The Bible tells us that 'All of us like sheep have gone astray; each of us has turned to his own way.'2
Deep down, our attitude may be one of active rebellion or passive indifference toward God and his ways, but it's all evidence of what the Bible calls sin.
The result of sin in our lives is death -- spiritual separation from God.3Although we may try to get close to God through our own effort, we inevitably fail.
There is a distance, a gap between us and God. The arrows show our efforts to reach God...doing good for others, religious rituals, trying to be a good person, etc. But the problem is that none of these good efforts actually cover up our sin or remove it.
It's like having a little money in a bank account, and trying to point to it, when there is a mountain of debt in credit cards to consider. Our sin is known by God and stands as a barrier between us and God. Further, the Bible says that the penalty for sin is death. We would be eternally separated from God.
