It is not difficult even for the common everyday church-attender to understand that sin is a deep biblical topic that ranges from Genesis to Revelation. Yet despite the modern theological complexities of such a weighty subject, Jesus spoke of sin simply. Ultimately, sin is what separates us from God. Thus, Jesus came to save us from that separation and restore us to the intimacy and fellowship with Him for whom we were created.
Jesus came to save us from our sin. The Christian life, simply speaking, is about living in a constant “praying without ceasing” relationship with Jesus Christ. He said it himself: “And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28:20). What separates religion from Christianity is the constant presence of the living God actively involved in the life of the Christian.
Perhaps many in the church today would experience more fulfillment and victory in life if they began eliminating those things that separate themselves from the God they serve.
