There have been a host of ideas about what humankind’s greatest problem is. Freud suggested it’s a conflict between the Super-ego and the Id. Just about every special interest group says it’s a lack of education. New Agers tell us we don’t realize that we’re “god’s.” The Bible tells us that in the beginning, humans were created by God for a relationship with him and each other. Sin greatly injured (and continues to injure) those relationships. Adam and Eve hid from God because of nakedness and God took care of the situation by clothing them. But ever since, humans have been “naked” before God and out of relationship with him because of sin. Humans haven’t been able to bridge that gap on our own, though we’ve tried. The deal is, we need God to do the bridge building … and he has.
The Holy Spirit is strongly desiring to apply this Scripture section to your heart and life. It’s from Ephesians 2:4-6, “But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!) For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus.”
Rest in the firm conviction of God’s amazing love for you. God bless you.
