"Man is sinful and separates from God and therefore he cannot know God's love and share in God's life and others."
in Romance 3: 23
"Everyone has sinned and is far away from God's saving presence"
When you committed a sin, what did you do?
Did you not repent or ask for forgiveness to him?
I know what you did,
you went on with your life not seeking him anymore, you turned your back against him.
Blaming him for what has happened to you, and it came to the point that you never believed in him again.
You turned your back, but did he turn his back on you?
Let me repeat that again,
Did he turn his back on you?
No, he never did. He only waited for you, waited for you to come back. Why?
We are his children, he made us and no matter how much we have sinned, all he ever wanted for us is to come back to him.
When Adam and Eve has committed the original sin. Somehow, the door from God to man has closed. By whom, by man itself... But for all we know, God never really left, he kept on knocking that door in order to enter. And since we do not allow him, he had to send his son in order for him to come inside.
"Man's separation from God results in man's separation from man."
What is it to expect if we have separated ourselves to God?
What is the difference if we separate ourselves from one another?
And because of this sin, we forgot how wanted us to be..... Remember? He wanted us to live in peace and harmony, with no doubts and hate. All in peace where we can love one another as brothers and sisters.
Because of that door we closed to God, we closed it to our brothers as well, making us separated from one another.
"Men are continually trying to search God by their own efforts"
You don't have to go that far in order to search God,
ask and he will hear you out, he never turned his back, remember that...
"Men cannot live in love and peace unless there is first a spiritual change in them which only God can produce."
"You cannot live by bread alone but by the word of God"
There is no peace without God,
there is no harmony without him.
But how do we get that?
Come back to him,
and show him how much you love him. And how grateful you are to have a father like him. He listens, remember that.. God is very generous,.
God is always there, he never left... Keep that in mind....
