Chapter 2

When man was made he was perfect and powerful, but through sin he became imperfect and powerless. Through that simple act of disobedience he lost his power and sin was and is able to exist in his life, and nothing can overtake sin but God. The sinner needs God. When sin entered we were eternally cut off from God, but Jesus came and bridged the gap so we are connected once again to the Father.

 

We need Christ in our lives and most importantly, in our hearts. Before sin, man was happy and joyful in the sight and presence of God, but with sin, that was all wiped away. Sin is so contradictory to the Father, that a sinner would not find joy, peace, and happiness in heaven. It would be torturous and he would continually want to hide from the face and light of the Sinless One.

 

We can’t go to the Father, except by the Son. We can’t change our hearts, only Christ is able. We can’t save ourselves, Christ died for us all. We need Christ and Christ alone to be redeemed and saved. Through His grace and mercy we can be saved.  “The heart of God yearns over His earthly children with a love stronger than death. In giving up His Son, He has poured out to us all heaven in one gift. The Savior’s life and death and intercession, the ministry of angels, the pleading of the Spirit, the Father working above and through all, the unceasing interest of heavenly beings,–all are enlisted in behalf of man’s redemption.” {SC 21.2}

Give your life completely to Christ.
