The Road to Intimacy – Part 2

March 31, 2007 at 3:51 pm 3 comments

Sin separates us from intimacy with God.

In the beginning, perfect intimacy existed between God and man, between God and woman, and between man and woman. That intimacy was broken by sin. Adam and Eve doubted God’s care for them and chose to trust the word of another over the word of God. Trust is essential to sustain intimacy. When they began to doubt God, their intimacy with God was broken. Ever since then we have all been separated from intimacy with God by our sin.

“Doubts and mistrust are the mere panic of timid imagination, which the steadfast heart will conquer and the large mind transcend.” – Helen Keller

Sin is disobedience to or disbelief of the revelation of God.

“All we like sheep have gone astray;
We have turned, every one, to his own way;
And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.” Isaiah 53:6 (NKJV)

“All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23 (NIV)

God wants to forgive our sin.

“The Lord longs to be gracious to you, and He waits on high to have compassion on you.” Isaiah 30:18 (NASB)

“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23
(Death here refers not only to physical death, but a spiritual death and eternal separation from intimacy with God.)

Stay tuned for Part 3…

    LABRATBITES WEBLOG, Tell me what is my sin to endure the filth of doctors for their greed and ego.
    Under the law they have no right. Is there a god? If so, why are people and their prayers ignored.
    It would be interesting just to get a feedback on this.
