We’re made in His image, which means we’re like him in many ways, except
that he’s God and we’re not. He’s loving and just and desires a
relationship with us. As individuals with free will, we have the freedom
to respond to the relationship God’s initiated with us, or not.
We’re free to choose to live outside the realm of the life God has for
us as it’s explained in the Bible. Put another way, many choices we make
either move us closer to God or further away from him. Making even
seemingly small decisions that separate us from God is called sin. We
all do it, and we’ll continue to do so. And, even then, God will love us
and passionately pursue us.
God loves us so much, in fact, that he sent his only son, Jesus, to die
so the rest of us could live. The cost of sin was separation from
God—spiritual death—until Jesus came and his death paid everyone’s debt.
That’s serious love. Because of that serious, perfect love, this gift
from God is waiting for anyone who wants to receive it. This is called
Grace. God gives grace freely and abundantly.
As for us, we need only to decide whether or not to believe and receive
this stuff. If we decide to believe it, we have available to us a new,
full life that can start now and never stop. And it’s OK to have a lot
of questions along the way. Although God reveals things to us (including
what he’s revealed about himself in the Bible), he remains mysterious
