You were made for relationship by a relational God!
Maybe you’ve never heard that before.
Hopefully this might answer questions that you may have been asking yourself like;
- Why am I never satisfied in my relationships?
- Why do I hang on to relationships even when they’re bad for me?
In the void of a relationship with our creator, we keep going from relationship to relationship
never satisfying our need for an authentic, wholesome relationship.
Here are a few more questions:
How do I have a relationship with God?
Why is there a void between us anyway?
Because the enemy of God “satan”, through deception and manipulation lead humankind into sin.
This singular moment in history created a separation between God and humankind.
This is referred to in the Bible as: The fall of a man
While the enemy of God certainly uses the manipulation of deception to lead us to sin
he did not make us sin, that was our choice.
This left us in a broken and in a desperate situation. Sin demands a penalty, that penalty is death.
This death is like no other, separated from God in a place called hell for eternity. Hell was not created for humankind, but for the enemy of God. But because of our sin, this is our future.
So where is the Hope in that?
Where is the good news?
Is there any?
The Bible tells us that sin leads to death, but we can have eternal life through Jesus Christ.
You see, sin demanded a penalty which was death. Jesus Christ took the penalty of death on the cross! He took all of my sin and all of your sin upon himself, and after he had died, they buried him. Three days later, the power of God, through the Holy Spirit, raised Jesus back to life.
The penalty of our sin was paid once, and for all!
Now Jesus offers us a new life made right with God, giving us the ability to have the original relationship we were intended to have with God.
Peter, one of Jesus’ disciples tells us to repent of your sins, which simply means to turn away from
sin and turn to God. In the book of Romans the Bible tells us “If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith
that you are saved.”

The Bible tells us in Luke 15:10 that when one sinner repents and returns to God,
a party is set off in heaven! We want to party with you and celebrate your decision to follow Jesus!
