Fantastic Fact 2
WHAT IS SIN?Sin is something we do or say or think that does not please God. The Bible says that everyone has sinned.“Everyone has sinned. No one measures up to God’s glory.” Romans 3:23, NIVrv When we disobey God’s rules, we can’t know and experience the wonderful plan God has for our lives.
God created us to talk to Him, and to live in a close relationship with Him, like in a family. But, because we disobeyed His rules, our closeness was broken, and an invisible wall went up between us and Him. This disobedience is called SIN. MAN IS SEPARATED FROM GOD“When you sin, the pay you get is death. But God gives you the gift of eternal life because of what Christ Jesus our Lord has done.” Romans 6:23 NIVrv This picture shows how our sin keeps us from knowing and pleasing God. Many people try to please God by doing good things, such as going to church, praying more, and helping others. Doing these things make you a nicer person, but they can’t erase your sin or make you part of God’s family.
